I wanted to try the same at home. Though it is a bit easy to put together the chat, we have list of preps to be made before we can serve it. Making papdi's at home is quite easy. Both the kiddo's loved the papdi's as such. The first batch around 15 papdi's vanished just like that straight from the oven. I had to hide the next batch to make the chat. Hubby is yet to taste, but i mopped the plate clean for my lunch 🙂 It was yummm, Finally, coming out of my block! 🙂
