Rice Papad | Papadum |Rice flour papad|chawal ke papad |khichiya papad made with rice flour! Easy and quick to make and super crisp and delicious Rice popadums recipe
In India food is incomplete without having few accompaniments in our thali. With the main course of daal ,sabzi ,rice and roti we do need few accompaniments like chutney,pickle and papad .Though Sabudana papad are easily available in the market but when we make papad at home then we can add spices, herbs as our taste preference.though there are so many variety easily available in the market but I still love to make my own batch every year
This is the perfect season to make different types of sun dried food items which can be preserved for the whole year. In fact In India we start making papad and chips before the Holi festival and continue making before the the heat become harsh and too hot to sit on the roof or in your balcony open space.
Traditionally Rice papad|khichiya papad’s aremade by making a dough by adding hot water in the rice flour then it is steam cooked . The steamed dough is divided into small balls and then rolled like chapati’s and sundried . OR a batter is made and then steamed in small plate. But both ways it is tedious and time consuming so I never tried making rice papad at home though I make aloo papad, sabudana papad, sooji papad etc every year.
This year I tried making rice papad like I made sooji papad and they turn out awesome!! so crisp and paper thin ,just the way I liked it.
How To Make Rice Papad
Making of Rice papad|khichiya papad is very quick and easy. We need good quality rice flour to make papad. Either you grind rice at home and make a fine powder or use store brought rice flour but do make sure that the flour is fresh .Then the rice flour is mixed with double amount of water and mixed well so there will be no lumps in the batter and then add the remaining water and salt and mix well. Cook it well till it become smooth and shiny and then let it cool down and when it is just warm add cumin seeds an chili flakes and mix.
lightly grease a thick plastic sheet and make papad over the sheet by pouring ladle full of batter on the sheet. When the papad’s are semi dried then flip the side and sundry for 2-3 days . It depends on the heat in the weather. Papad should dry completely before storing else they may get fungus .
I have made small size papad’s but you can make bigger if you like. The most important thing is to cook the batter properly else the papad will got cracks while sun drying.

For anyone wondering; these can be cooked in the microwave for a healthier alternative to frying!
I had some small issues because I think I maybe made them too thin, and the very paper thin parts of the papad were not cooking (puffing up) in the microwave. But the parts that did were great. Will try this recipe again and make them thicker! Great easy way to make papad; I had been so intimidated by all the very complicated multi-step recipes I saw.
Thank You Bushra! Glad you liked it ,yes making them thicker will work in microwave too
I tried this way of papads by directly put on a plastic sheet without greasing. I didn’t have to turn it halh the way. Sun was so hot about 45 degrees and the papads got dried by evening but I still kept it in sun for one more day. It is the easiest way of making papads even the sabudana papads are done in the same way. I added chopped curry leaves also.

After some time all papad are cracked .why ??
May be you have not cooked the batter properly, if we have cooked for less time then this happens but no difference in the taste.
I tried these and they came out perfect. So easy to make . I didn’t have papad Khaar so used bicarbonate of soda.
Thank You 🙂
I dried in room and it stinks smell like yukkkk … Floor sad gaya hai.. is it normal ???
You have to dry it under the fan so it will semi dry in a day, stinking smell never happens ,there will be some mistake in making or drying
