Popadoms are an essential part of the meal when you go out for a curry. They are wafer thin crisps made with Urid flour that are fried and used as an appetiser with a whole array of spicy condiments. At home they are usually bought dried, in packets which are either deep fried or baked on a dry tava (griddle pan). They can be plain or flavoured with cumin, ajwain, black pepper or even chilli.
I usually tend to buy them because they are great to have in the cupboard but they are pretty simple to make if you can get hold of Urid flour. If not you can grind up dried urid lentils to make the flour yourself or use gram flour.
This recipe and pictures comes from one of the members of #Hari'sCurryCrew from the App who created these amazing popadoms and shared the recipe with us so thank you Jon Crew-Gee for your work on this beautiful recipe!
