The famous Amritsari Papad, now in their homemade avatar. The perfect accompaniment to dal-chawal or sabzi-phulka and of course, they hold their own as a stand-alone anytime snack too.
Who hasn’t heard about Amritsari papad wadiyan? Any tourist worth her or his salt will pick up a pack or two from the ubiquitous papad shops that surround the Golden Temple. These papad and wadiyan, though delicious, are mass produced under questionable hygiene conditions. Ammiji visited these shops only if it were an emergency and if she had run out of her own homemade papad wadiyan. Even now, when her arthritic fingers will not let her roll out papad or shape the wadiyan properly, she will sit on a chair in her verandah, and get these made by her helper under her eagle-eyed supervision.
These papad and wadiyan come to you from Amritsar, made under Ammiji’s supervision, from ingredients that are hand-picked by her. They are made from premium urad dal and use the choicest spices.
Ajwain is a perennial hit with Ammiji. She recognizes the immense digestive benefits of these tiny seeds and incorporates them into almost everything that comes out of her kitchen. Stomach ache – have ajwain waala paani; heaviness – have ajwain waali chai; stomach upset – have roasted ajwain with salt; her list of recommendations for ajwain goes on and on.
Here, she has taken her favorite spice and incorporated them into her traditional Amritsari papads. Did you know that papad aids digestion? That is the reason they have been a part of the Indian diet for as far back as we can remember! And with the added benefit of ajwain, they’re double the power!
You can roast them on a griddle or pan, deep fry them, toast them or microwave them – any which way, they add that perfect zing to your meal.
