Whole Wheat Masala Papdi Recipe / Kadak Puri Recipe by Archana’s Kitchen


  • To begin making the homemade Papdi, we will first have to make the dough.

  • Mix all the flour, ajwain, pepper, oil and salt together. Add water a little at a time and knead the papdi dough until it becomes firm and smooth and firm. It should not be soft.

  • You can make 30 small balls and roll them out thin about 1-1/2 inches in diameter and 1/8 th thickness.

  • Or you can divide the dough into two portions and roll out into a big large circle and cut small rounds using a cookie cutter.

  • Make sure the papdi you roll out are thin.

  • After rolling prick the papdi / kadak puri with a fork all round to prevent it from puffing when baked

  • Place the oil for deep frying over medium heat. To check the right temperature, put a small tiny ball of dough into the oil and if it comes sizzling up, then you know the oil is heated to the right temperature.

  • Slide the papdi into the oil in small batches and deep fry until golden brown.

  • Drain the excess oil by placing in a kitchen paper. You can optionally at this stage sprinkle chaat masala on the top to make it chatpata. 

  • Allow it to cool and store the Papdi / kadak puri in an airtight container. 

  • Use the Papdi to make chaats like Mumbai Style Bhelpuri, Sev Papdi Chaat, and many more. You sure can innovate your topping, may be like a chilli-cheese, or chilli corn and cheese, etc.
