How to Prepare
    • In a bowl, add boiled chickpeas, onions, tomatoes, chillies, coriander leaves, cumin powder, red chilli powder, amchur powder and salt to taste.
    • Mix well and set them aside.
    • To prepare papad katoris, firstly, grease the microwave katoris with oil.
    • Take a papad and dip in water for around three seconds or until it gets soft.
    • Remove it gently and pat dry with a paper napkin. Make sure to pat dry by keeping the wet papad in between the paper napkin.
    • Lift the papad carefully and spread it on the greased microwave katori.
    • Press the centre part of the papad into the katori and then arrange the sides in the bowl, so that the papad takes the shape of the bowl.
    • Repeat the process with the remaining papads.
    • Set the microwave to HIGH and cook for around 30 seconds. Take the katoris out and if the sides are still wet, microwave for more than 30 seconds.
    • Invert the katori and remove the papad. If the papad is stuck a bit, use a knife to take it out.
    • Keep the papad katoris and chickpeas salad separately.
    • When the guest arrives, take papad katoris and add two tablespoons of chickpea fillings in each.
    • Add a bit of lemon juice and garnish with pomegranate seeds, sev and boondi.
    • Serve immediately.
  • Avoid leaving the papad in the water for too long as it may cause the papad to become mushy.
