Who hasn’t heard about Amritsari papadwadiyan? 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 papadwadiyan. 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.
Jeera papad is the crowd-pleaser from our triumvirate of papadflavours. It has a mild flavor and is easy on a palate that doesn’t tolerate too much spice. Flavoured with cumin, Ammiji’s jeera papad is the one thing that you won’t be able to stop munching on.
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! 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.
