dal papdi recipe – crispy & crunchy tea time snack | moong dal ki papdi with step by step photo and video recipe. deep-fried snacks or most commonly known as papdi recipes are hugely popular, especially with young audiences. these are purpose-based snacks that are mainly served as munching snacks but can also be repurposed for chaat and toppings for other recipes. one such simple and easy munching snack is dal papdi recipe known for its crispiness and sharp savoury taste.

last year when i posted the rice papdi recipe, it was an instant hit and i did get a lot of requests to post a variety of papdi recipes. well, generally the papdi is made with rice flour for that extra crispiness and crunchiness. but mixing other types of flour or lentils makes it more tasty and effective. so in this recipe, i have used the combination of urad and moong dal which add the required protein nutrient to it. generally, we add these types of lentils to chakli or murukku, so i have followed the same ratio here to get the same taste. technically, you may even extend this recipe by adding more types of lentils, but i skipped it as it may complicate things with soaking and grounding. do try this variant and let me know what do you think of this crispy and tasty recipe.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the dal papdi recipe. firstly, in this recipe, i have shown a simple trick using a zip lock bag to flatten and roll the papdi. this is the most effective way, but if you feel plastic is no good or do not have it, you may use a rolling pin to roll it down. secondly, i have added pepper and chilli with salt to have the lip-smacking savoury taste. but if you wish to make it spicier, you may add chilli powder, garam masala and even chaat masala for better taste. lastly, the shelf life of this crisp snack can easily last to 2-3 weeks, yet it is better to store in an airtight container for longer shelf life.
