Microwave Papad Tacos

Microwave Papad Tacos - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
An amazing desi touch to the Mexican Tacos that are done in a microwave oven in just about 30 seconds. I have served them with Sprouted Chana Chaat which is for sure a healthy option for the evening snacks or a quick brunchie too. My innovative idea of microwaving at it's best. Happy Microwaving !!!!!!!

  • Microwave on HIGH for about 30 secs. I have used a 1250 Watt Microwave. You might require little less or more time depending upon the microwave you are using.
  • For the chana chaat, soak them overnight and then wrap them up in a wet cloth and place them on the kitchen counter for about 2 to 3 days. Your sprouts are ready.
  • Heat oil in a microwave safe bowl along with the assfoetida. Add the sprouts to it along with the spices excluding the veggies and the chaat masala. Mix well.
  • Cover and allow it to cook for about 3 minutes on HIGH. After 3 minutes, remove and stir once and then microwave again for about 3 more minutes. Repeat it four times in all with a 3 minute time limit taking it out and stirring it each time.
  • After done, add in the veggies. Give it all a good mix. Sprinkle chaat masala on top and squeeze some lemon juice. Adjust salt according to taste.
  • Serve this chana chaat in microwave papad tacos and enjoy with family and friends.

Recipe Notes

It takes about 30 secs for the papad tacos in a microwave. For the chana chaat it takes about 12 minutes to little more. You can make as many tacos as needed and serve with the chana chaat.
