Poppadum is a thin crispy Indian kind of 'cracker'. It is served as an accompaniment in India or it can be eaten as a snack or appetizer. I love it when they are homemade in restaurants! You can bespread them with chutney, dipping sauces, herbs or onions.
My chutney consists of onion without the sharpness and it has a sweet flavor. Poppadums are a bit salty so I absolutely adore this combination. We eat them as an appetizer or as a snack with a nice beer. When are you going to make this Indian delight?
1 large onion, sliced
1 tbs ketchup
1 tbs tomato puree
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp roasted cumin seeds
touch of salt
pack of ready to eat poppadoms
Put the chopped onion in a bowl with water and ice. Let this stay in the fridge for one hour.
Roast the cumin seeds in a dry frying pan.
Drain the onions and dry dab. Mix the ketchup, tomato puree, chili powder, cumin seeds and salt with the onions. Put this back in the fridge for another hour. Absolutely delish on a poppadom.
