Papadums

What are your favorite ways of eating papadums?
Do you crisp them up in the microwave?

(No recipe please--- I have no intention of making my own papadoms! )

Never having ever heard of them, I did a little search and they sound interesting. I did come across this site that seems pretty instructive on how to crisp them up with little or no problem. However, if one doesn't have a gas stove the challenge would continue.

I'm just curious why you would bring them up?

Love them with little dishes of lime pickle, brinjal pickle, mint infused thick yogurt . A great accompaniment to all things curry of course. If I am feeling noble and 'good' then I microwave them but they really are divine just crisped in hot oil for a few seconds each side.

l don't eat them at home, but do have them at Indian restaurants sometimes. Normally I just dip them in whatever chutney or sauce is offered.

I must admit that they make a very tasty snack, even plain as jennyema says...I micro a couple when I'm at home and get the munchies. Why does it make me feel like it's a guilty pleasure???

Some people have an innate curiousity about almost everything. I'd hate to confine myself to just those things that are common. And besides, I like ethnic foods.

Thank you, menumaker. A microwave will be less 'mess' but oil would be tastier.

I checked that link out---- but I have an electric range. Darn! Microwaved for me or fried, I guess.
