Rajasthani Papad ki Churi | Papad ki Churi Recipe

What is Papad ki Churi?

Rajasthani Papad ki Churi is crumbled and crushed crispy papad combined with spicy Bikaneri bhujia (savory snack), crunchy onions and fresh coriander leaves, making it an easy peasy side dish/appetizer. This preparation can be fixed in minutes and can pep up your dining table in no time at all. Also, if ever the dal turns out boring or the gravy tastes bland, this fellow comes to the rescue. Just serve it with a not so interesting dal or gravy and your taste buds will be satisfied.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Rajasthani Papad ki Churi

Papad: I have used the Bikaji’s moong dal papad. The best way to cook papad for such preparations is by using a microwave. Papad roasted in a microwave is crispier and remains crisp.

Bikaneri bhujia: Well, it is something not just limited to Bikaner. This is available across the globe. But in case, you don’t have it, add any namkeen of your choice.

Other ingredients: Chopped onions, coriander are the ones which should be added towards the end of the recipe. Little melted ghee is added which helps to combine all the ingredients. Other than these basic spices have been used. Kashmiri red chili powder instead of the regular red chili powder gives a spicy look without making the churi too spicy, therefore it has been used.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
