If you’ve ever been to Goa and eaten at a beach shack, you’ve definitely had this delectable snack. Crispy pappadum stuffed with a Shrimp Chilly fry filling, rolled, sealed and fried. Papads or Pappaadums are made from a lentil flour paste that was traditionally dried in the sun by the ladies of the household. Today these are available in a wide variety of flavors and sizes. The best kind for this snack is the type that does not have any holes that will let the oil through.
