1 cup
All-purpose flour 
1 cup
½  cup
¼ Tsp.
3 Tbsp.

  1. In a big mixing bowl add whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, suzi/semolina, salt and oil.
  2. Rub the oil and flours with fingertips till everything is mixed and incorporated well.

  4. Cover and keep aside for 15-20 minutes.
  5. Knead again and divide the dough into 6-8 equal balls.
  6. On dusted board roll each dough ball to make 10-11 inch diameter circle. It should be not too thick & not too thin.
  7. Prick the entire surface closely using fork. Pricking will prevent Papdi from puffing while frying and become crisp.
  8. Using a cookie cutter, cut small bite size circle or different shapes from the rolled dough.
  9. Remove the extra rolled dough and use to make the rest of the Papdis.
  10. Heat oil in a deep frying pan on medium high heat.
  11. Once oil is hot, slide in few Papdis, fry them till golden brown and crisp from both sides.
  12. Drain the Papdi on kitchen paper towels to absorb excess oil.
  13. Let them cool down completely and enjoy with the cup of hot tea or use to make chaat recipes. Store leftover Papdi air tight container.
