you can either fry or roast the papads. we prefer the fried ones over the roasted ones. the roasting can be done on a grill or microwave or on open fire. you can also have a look at the recipes of:

    • deeksha, black salt won’t make it bitter. bitterness can come from onions. when you chop onions, do make sure that you remove the root part of it. it its there, it can create bitterness in any dish. also depending on the quality of onions, it can be bitter.
