Recipe for Crunchy Roasted Masala Papad Cones

Ingredients Serves (4 – 6 people)

  • 4-6 Punjabi or Garlic papads for roasting

For the fresh salsa filling:

  • 2 medium sized onions, finely chopped
  • 2 medium or 1 large tomato, finely chopped
  • 1 green chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped coriander leaves
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • Salt to tasteĀ 
  • Small shot glasses or bowls to serve


  1. Cut each papad into 2 halves (if large) and place on a hot non-stick pan. Press it gently with a kitchen towel on both sides, flipping twice to ensure equal roasting on both sides.
  2. Switch off the flame, take the papad pieces off the pan quickly while still warm. Place onto a kitchen towel and fold immediately into a conical shape from both sides. Hold in shape till it cools.
  3. Roast and shape all the papads similarly and place each cone in a shot glass or small bowl.
  4. Mix all the ingredients listed under Salsa filling & fill all the papad cones with the tangy tomato salsa.
  5. Serve immediately to avoid the cones from getting soggy.


  1. You can make the salsa an hour or two ahead and store in an air tight container in the refrigerator.
  2. Make and fill the papad cones only at the last minute to prevent them from getting soggy and limp.
