Papadum is a thin, crisp, disc-shaped food from the Indian subcontinent;
It is typically based on a seasoned dough usually made from peeled black gram flour (urad flour), fried or cooked with dry heat.
Flours made from other sources such as lentils, chickpeas, rice, tapioca, or potato can be used.
Papadums are typically served as an accompaniment to a meal in many different countries.
In certain parts of India, papadums which have been dried but not cooked are used in curries and vegetable dishes.
