Masala Papad Cones
Cooking Time Required: 10-12 mins
Cost of preparation: 10-15 rupees
Ingredients: Boiled potato ( 1 small ), Lijjat papad ( 1 no ), chopped coriander ( 1
tbs ), chopped ripe tomato ( 2 tbs ), red chilli flakes ( 1/3 tsp ), lemon juice ( few drops ), olive oil ( 1/5 tsp ), roasted sesame seeds ( 1/2 tsp ), salt ( to taste), any vegetable oil for deep frying.
Preparation: Peel and cut the potato into very small pieces. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
Add all the ingredients except for the papad and oil . Mix well.
Cooking: Heat sufficient amount of oil in a deep wok.
Cut the papad into 4 pieces (quarters) and roll each piece into a cone shape. Hold the shape with the help of a pair of tongs and dip into hot oil for 20-25 secs.
Remove fried papad from wok and keep on a blotting paper/paper napkin. Allow to cool
for 5 mins.
Stuff the prepared mixture into the papad cone.
Garnish with coriander leaves and chilli flakes and serve immediately.
Note: Use fresh papads for best results. I used a packet which was opened a month back and the papads turned a little brittle.
