Namkeen Chatpata or Papad Triconi


Flattened rice—2 palmful

Raw peanuts—1 palmful


Curry leaves—a sprig

Onion—1 (finely chopped)

Green chillies—quantity is left to individual taste, but should be finely chopped

Chat masala—1 tea spoon

Black salt or salt—to taste

Lemon juice—a few drops

Refined oil—as per requirement


Place a kadhai on the stove. Heat oil. Use a skimmer to fry the flattened rice.

Keep the flattened rice in the skimmer and dip the skimmer in the oil. Gently stir it with another spoon or just twirl the skimmer a little and the flattened rice will puff up.

Bring out the skimmer and spread the flattened rice on a piece of paper. Next, fry the peanuts in the same style using the skimmer, and at last fry the curry leaves.

Now, on a different pan or tawa, dry roast the papads. Give triangular shape to two of the papads while roasting on the tawa. Crush into pieces one roasted papad.

Mix the flattened rice, peanuts, pieces of papad, curry leaves, onion, chilly, chat masala, salt and lemon juice in a bowl or on the paper itself where you kept all the fried ingredients.

Fill the triangular papads with this mixture. You can shape cups from paper and place the triangular papads inside those paper cups. Serve to your kids in this style and they will really relish it.
