  1. wow!its very very tasty .
    being jain i had eaten it before but it was not as tasty as today now i will eat it regularly.keep writing such great receipes.and i will make it and eat it.

  2. mom allways used to make this papad subji.only differnce i can see here missed onion.if you add onion while you make this then it will become more tasty.make sure you add onion when you make this.yummm...

  3. My wife makes papad subji occasionally specially on Rainy days in evening for dinner.However she uses nothing then some fried onions.if you have mix papads with different flavors you really don't need anything to add.BEWARE:-If you have high blood pressure try to not to eat too much and too often as it contains lots of salt that is not good for high blood pressure patients.

  4. Today I was home. My wife had to work.When she came home I made this "Papad Nu Shaak" and rice. She loved it so much that she was dancing.

    Thanks a lot.
