Dahi Papad ki Sabzi

Papad ki sabzi is a traditional dish from Rajasthan.  It is made with papad as the main ingredient.  This recipe is very easy and quick to put together and tastes delicious. There are two ways of making this sabzi. It can be made by adding fried papad to the tomato gravy. Alternately raw papad pieces are added to the gravy and is allowed to cook. Today I am sharing the second method of making this sabzi.  Serve papad sabzi with plain  roti, missi roti, bajra roti, ajwain paratha or rice.
