Poppadoms are a thin, crisp Indian preparation sometimes described as a cracker. It is typically served as an accompaniment to a meal in India. It is also eaten as an appetizer or a snack and can be eaten with various toppings such as chopped onions, chutney or other dips. These black pepper poppadoms are the ideal accompaniment to creamy Indian dishes.
Poppadoms are an Indian staple made from little more than flour (rice, lentils, potato, and chickpea are among the most popular), water, and spices.????????í
Sometimes poppadoms are a starter, draped with raw onion, tomato, fresh coriander leaves, and Serrano chilies and topped off with????????íchaat masala????????í(a salty-sour spice blend used to garnish many snacks). They can also be simply roasted for a quick, healthy snack.
In certain parts of India, poppadoms which have been dried but not cooked are used in curries and vegetable dishes.
