Dahi Papad ki Sabzi

My New year greetings to all ! Ya I am posting after a long time. Hoping to be more regular :)

This subzi is convenient to make when you have run out of vegetables. Inspired from Sanjeev Kapoor's recipe.


1 1/2 cups Sour Yogurt
4-5 Papads (Fried or roasted)
3/4 tbsp gram flour
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
3/4 tsp chilli powder
1 1/2 tbsp pure ghee
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp asafoetida
2 dreid red chillies, broken into 2
1/4 cup boondi
1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander leaves
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
Salt to taste


In a large bowl, combine the yogurt, gram flour, turmeric powder, chilli powder and salt. Add two cups of water and whisk till smooth.  Strain and set aside.
Heat the ghee in a kadai, add the cumin seeds. when they change colour, add the coriander powder and saute for a minute on low heat. Add the asafoetida and red chillies and saute for few seconds.
Add the yogurt mixture and stir continuously till it comes to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for two minutes.
Roughly break the papads and add it to the simmering yogurt. Add the boondis too.
If you have any leftover papads this subzi works well.
Boil for two minutes, remove from heat, garnish with coriander leaves and garam masala.

The original recipe makes use of Bikaneri moong papad.
