A papad I microwaved today turned out like this - perfectly conical, a hill almost as high as it is wide :)

Color me surprised. OMG! I never knew! I learned to cook them the way grandma and auntie cooked them - in oil. Since I'm always watching what I eat I almost never make them... and since there are not around hardly any desi people in my normal life (I am so isolated) I never ever thought of nuking them. OMG I'm like, totally stunned. THANK YOU for posting that. I mean, so simple! OMG thank you.

You're very welcome :)

They taste slightly worse than when fried in oil, but I think its well worth the health benefits and the time saved (store shelf --> microwave --> mouth).

Crispies/flatbreads made from lentil flour, popular in India. Gaining ground in the UK, I hear.

If it's of any help- they're popularly known as Poppadums in the UK,although the Indian counterparts (the originals, that is!) go by a host of names (some generic, some unique)!:D

Haha, that's super. It's like that guy making strange models of a mountain with his food in Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
