Lentil Wafers/ Bread (Pappadum)
- 4 store-bought puppadum
- Oil for deep-frying
Heat the oil in an Indian kadhai or a deep-fryer to a depth of 2 inches. When the oil is hot to 375 F degrees, drop one wafer into the oil. The wafer will turn several shades lighter and expand considerably, this will take about 5 seconds. Remove with a pair of tongs and drain on paper towels. Fry all the wafers the same way.
