Can Indians do without papad after their meals? Papad, commonly known as pappadum, makes for a great snack or appetiser that is enjoyed by people across the whole nation. It is a tortilla-like preparation or flat bread that can be fried or roasted. Papad is a thin, crisp, disc-shaped food item, typically made of seasoned dough using peeled black gram flour (urad dal) or other sources such as lentils, rice, chickpeas (kabuli chana), tapioca, or potato.
Papad is crispy thin cracker which is served as an assortment of chutneys in Indian restaurants. It is eaten as snacks or appetisers in the northern part of the nation, while in the southern region, it is served as a supplement with their meals. There are vast varieties of papad available – they are processed using different spices along with inbuilt flavours as per one’s own preference and taste.
It is known by different names in the different regions, ‘appalam’ in Tamil Nadu and ‘pappadum’ in Kerala -- with ‘papad’ remaining the most common term in maximum parts of the country. The papad recipe also varies from family to family. Salt and peanut oil are used to knead dough typically made from the flour of lentils, chickpea, blackgram, and tapioca. For the seasonal flavourings, a plethora of authentic Indian spices is used such as - chili, cumin, garlic, or black pepper. Baking soda makes for an important ingredient to make the dough rise and become fluffy. Nowadays, different types of vegetable juices are also added to inflate both organoleptic and nutritional characteristics of the papad.
Small round balls are prepared from it and then the dough is rolled out into a thin, round flat bread. These are further dried out under the sun for approximately four to five hours. It can be cooked by deep frying, toasting, roasting over an open flame, or microwaving, depending on the desired texture. Each cooking method reveals a different flavour from the same papad.
There are different varieties of papad depending on the flour used - rice, urad, potato, and lots more. The hub for manufacturing papad is Bikaner, Rajasthan, especially for moong and urad ones. Kerala and Madurai, Kanchipuram, and Chennai in Tamil Nadu are the major papad or appalam manufacturers in the south. It is called as 'happala' in Karnataka.
