Baked papdis

The first column of round papdis in the pic are made from wheat flour while rest are made from all purpose flour.


1 cup all purpose flour/maida
2 tbsp vanaspati/shortening
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp ajwain

Add salt and ajwain to the flour. Mix in the vanaspati to get crumbles. Add little water as required to get a stiff dough. Keep covered in a muslin cloth for 10 mins. Knead again and roll into thick roti by dusting a little with flour. Use a round cutter to cut small rounds. Repeat for rest of the dough. Prick each of the rounds well so that it doesnt puff up.

Preheat the oven to 180 deg. Place the rounds on the MW safe plate leaving some gap in between. Bake for approx 5-6 mins in Microwave and Grill combination mode at 600W. Check how long your microwave takes as baking for a longer time would burn the papdis.

The papdis can be had as it is and is also ideal for usage in chaats.

** You can make it more healthy by trying with wheat flour, but it would not be as crisp as all purpose flour ones.
