6 - papads, each about 6 inches in diameter (if you use smaller papads, use more)
1/2 tsp - red chilli powder (use more or less according to your taste)
1/2 cup - finely diced coriander leaves
2 tbsp - grated coconut (optional)
1/2 cup - finely chopped onion (shallots would be even better)
How to Make Papada Kismoor
Roast the papads in the microwave. You can stack them and keep them in for a minute, which is usually enough. If you have raw spots, you can let them go for a few seconds more but watch them carefully.
Alternatively, if you know how to do this, roast the papads over the open flame of a gas stove.
Crumble the papads into small pieces in a bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Salt is not essential because the papads are fairly salty.
