Papad Parathas

    Papad or Poppadums are very favorite Indian meal accompaniment-and also are eaten either before meals with chutney as an appetizer, or with meals as side. In many parts of India and in many Families (specially mine!), papad eating is almost an obsession and must-have with every Indian meal. Papad can be prepared in various ways-fried or roasted or even cook in gravy or just serve I roasted or fried papad as garnishing the dish. Here is a rather freakish Papad based recipe. "Papad Parathas"...!
   As #foodiemonday #bloghop today, we all #foodiemonday blogger decide to try out each other's recipe. And there way, I got opportunity to try out such a talented young girl, Jolly's recipe. Now, quick introduction about Jolly and her recipes. Jolly means Happy/joy and you can see it in her recipes.:) Jolly is food blogger cum SEO professional. She enjoy cooking as her passion. Her homemade recipe's blog has both vegetarian and non-vegetarian recipes She has large amount of delicious recipes on her blog . It was hard to decide which one, should I try, but after scrolling for half a day I decide to try out her Stuffed Papad Paratha. It is easy and awesome recipe by her. This recipe can also cook with some variations too. I follow her recipe step by step with just a small twist in it. Jolly used the roasted Papad in this recipe and I used fried papad. Besides this everything else remains the same.
