Haapla Chutney ( Papad Chutney )

We make this as a side with rice and curry. We call this Haapla( papad) chutney. It doesn't involve any grinding or anything. Just very simple, but very crunchy and appetising to the tongue and hardly takes any time to make. I like it a lot :)....


Papads, roasted - 4
Fresh grated coconut - 1/4 cup
Onion, finely chopped - 1 small
Green chillies, chopped - 1 ..This is optional
Salt - to taste

- Mix the grated coconut, onion, chilli and salt and keep aside.
- Roast the Papads, and crush them with your hands into the above and toss to mix well.
- Ready to eat.

Some points to note here
- Use roasted papads only for this, not the deep fried ones.
- Can use any variety of papads, like the ones with green chilli, red chilli or any other.
- Crush the papads in the coconut mix only when you are ready to start eating. If you mix early and keep, it becomes very soft and doesn't taste good.
- You can omit the grenn chillies from this, if u don't need so much spice.
- Add salt keeping in mind that the papad already has salt in it.

Hi Maya..yet another fave of my mother! She has to eat Kana-anga Happolu(Sweet Potato Happolu) raw or roasted with freshly scraped coconut!

As Meera says..we too make Kismoori out of shallow fried karela which has raw onions,coconut scrapings and green chillies too!

Hi Maya,
I make this "kismuri" with kara (chilli appalams) papad which is a Mangalorean pappad. Fast to make especially if sudden guests arrive.
