Mike Wolfberg's Recipe for Poppadums - Fried Thin Lentil Bread)

This is one of a dozen recipes developed by Mike for a Concord/Carlisle Massachusetts Newcomers Gourmet Group dinner which took place on 1-Mar-75.

This appetizer was prepared by a volunteer for the cocktail party.


  1. As close to serving time as possible, heat the oil in a large frying pan or wok over medium-high heat. When the oil barely begins to smoke, fry one poppadum at a time and then drain on paper towels. Use a long-handled fork to keep the wafer submerged in the hot oil for about 5-10 seconds, as it puffs up and crispens. Lower the heat if the wafers tend to burn.
  2. Since these are being served as an appetizer, break the cooked wafers into manageable pieces.

To serve: Place the cooked poppadums in large baskets or bowls.
