So what do you do with it? Pappadums make a great snack when topped or served with chutney, pickles, dips, minted yoghurt or salad. Pappadums can be broiled, fried, flame roasted, or cooked in a microwave. I was lazy and cooked mine in the microwave because it only took 45 seconds, SWEET!!
1 package pappadums, quartered (flavored with garlic, if possible)
Preheat grill. Brush each quarter with oil on both sides. Grill on each side until blistered, about 10 to 12 seconds on each side.
Spicy Lentil Dip:
3 cups cooked lentils
1/2 cup coarsely chopped red onion
4 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
1 serrano pepper, coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon cumin
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
Place lentils, onion, garlic, pepper and vinegar in the bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth. Slowly add the olive oil. Season with cumin, salt and pepper and pulse 3 times. Remove to a bowl and garnish with cilantro
Alright, I am out. Sorry about the lack of blog design. I hate doing that stuff. Its a work in progress so bare with me. Happy Hump day to all!
