Recipe by graffeetee

I couldn't find a recipe here on 'zaar for this Indian dish, so I went searching on the net. With those recipes I found as a start, I created my own version, which is a bit healthier than the original, and easier, too. Papri is the name given to the crunchy bits of fried flatbread mixed into this salad. I use an easier and lower fat alternative in baking strips of prepared flatbreads. This must be tossed or assembled right before serving, or the papri become soggy.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut roti in half, and then into strips.
  2. Spread on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 F until dry and crisp, approximately 10-15 minutes.
  3. Chop potato, tomato, and onion.
  4. Combine veggies and chickpeas and mix.
  5. Add cumin seeds and chaat masala and mix again.
  6. Add the yogurt and chutneys and mix a third time.
  7. At this point you may either mix in the papris, or serve the mix over the papris.
  8. For a more attractive presentation, spread papris on a platter, top with the mixed veggies and spices, and top those with the yogurt and chutneys. Each person can mix up their own plate.
