Roasting Appalam/Papad in Microwave

Roasting Appalam/Papad in Microwave

 Simple way to roast crispy appalam in microwave. This just takes 2 drops or less oil for roasting the appalam. I don't say this method make appalam a healthier dish but it takes less oil,  so healthier in some way and economical too. Give a try if you have a microwave at home.
Appalam and papad of your choice, I am using Rice appalam. 
Any oil - 2 drops per appalam.
Microwave safe plate.

Place the appalam on the microwave safe plate. 
Grease onside of the appalam with 2 drops of oil. 
Place the plate in the microwave high for 1:30 minutes. 

Every microwave is different. My microwwave takes 1:30 minutes for this brand. Some time back I used urad dal appalam, which took one minute to get roasted in microwave. So start with 1:00 minute and increase the time accordingly. 


  1. Hi Snageetha,

    I only use the papadum express microwave tray for my papads or papadums. can you suggest if the appalam can also cook in the papadum express tray. i do not like frying or too much oil, thus the questions. have you experience cooking in the tray?

I started learning cooking from my grandmother, Mrs. Gunaseeli, who gave me her recipes and tips and some measurement tools for making them. The red measuring cup that I use in my recipes was once owned by my granny. My grandmother is very passionate about cooking and travel. She has written many cook books. This blog is one way to document her writing and to make it available for everyone.
