ISO tips for making pompadoms

Pompadoms (http://video.about.com/indianfood/How-to-Make-Poppadom.htm) have been on my bucket list for awhile...I'm thinking of giving them a try this weekend. Anyone have tips on preparing them or rolling them out. I thought I'd cook them on my lefse griddle. Any changes anyone would make to the recipe in the link?

I love papadums.

But I have never made them. The packaged kind isnt too bad, actually.

Well--they can't be any more complicated to make than Scandinavian flatbread, lefse, or tortillas. I am thinking I probably roll them about the same thickness as the flatbread since it is wafer thin and crisp. I bake that though...maybe I'll try both--on the griddle and baked...

Thanks!

I don't think so--but there are a couple of stores where I shop that have an Indian food section, so I'm hoping there or the bulk barn.

Thanks TaxLady! I know the Bulk Barn in C'wall has chickpea flour and I have to go to the bank there Friday afternoon, so I'll stop and get some. Did you bake yours or cook them on a griddle? I know you can deep fry them, but I don't want to add the calories or fat. What are your favorite ways to eat them? Do they keep well (I'm thinking of storing them like I do flatbread).
