Indian food is beloved around the world. Indian culture is rooted in a rich history that includes multiple spices in their dishes. Almost all dishes contain turmeric – the spice of life that contains curcumin to help boost the immune system.
While they have many savory dishes, they also have many types of bread and carbs, including chapati, naan and even papadum.
Papadum is a lighter alternative and is similar to a large crisp. It’s made from lentils and can be served with vegetables on top. Here are a few reasons to give this treat a try.
Top it Off
The best ingredients to place on top of papadum are thinly sliced tomatoes, onions, and parsley. All you need to do is chuck the papadum in the microwave or on a frying pan for a few seconds, and you’re good to go. Easy peasy. Add fresh veggies on top for a delicious and quick Indian dish.
During the holidays, especially Diwali, many Indians like to enjoy smearing sauces on the papadum as a base. Or even on its own. The spices reflect the rich culture of India and this dish is a celebration of history and how it’s closely tied to food.
