Papdi Gathiya with farsan chutney-Gram flour crisps with spicy green chutney and stir fried sweet and sour carrots and peppers is a popular Breakfast from the North Western Indian State of Gujarat.
Gathiya, Paapdi, Faafda, and Dhokla are the most popular Gujarati breakfast items (or farsan as they are called in Gujarati).Gujarati people use gramflour in most of there snacks. All the savory farsans, dhoklas are usually made with gram flour/ besan. The farsans are either deep fried or steamed.
Deep fried ones have a long shelf life and can be stored easily for a month. You can make them once and enjoy the whole month. They are great to carry along for travel etc.
They are served with a tangy green chutney and a sweet and sour stir fry of green chillies, carrots, papayas,or cabbage, which is called Sambharo.
The farsan shops often gives a delicious creamy ‘farsan chutney’, which is slightly different from the regular green chutney that we usually make at home. Sambharo and farsan chutney go well with almost all Gujrati snacks.
