Sooji Khicha, sun dried recipe for preserving semolina in form of papad. Easy to prepare, a light papad recipe goes well with dal chawal or simply with evening tea. Detailed instructions and ingredients required for the recipe are as follows:

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Total Time 4 days
Serves: 25-30papads approx
Sooji or semolina- 1 cup
water- 6 cups
salt -to taste
cumin seeds- 1/2 teaspoon

In a heavy bottomed pan, I am using pressure cooker, add sooji and water  mix well, leave it for 5-7 minutes so that sooji can soak enough water, mix well, place this pan on high flame for boiling, stirring continously till mixture starts boiling add salt to it, as  its color changes towards transparent. switch off the flame, let it cool for another 10-12 minutes

add cumin seeds to it, mix gently. Pour one table spoon mixture on plastic sheet make papad by spreading it in circular motion., repeat the process with the remaining mixture.
Sun dry it for 3 -4 days, at the end of the day one you will be able to turn papads, remaining 2 -3 days are required for proper drying.
You can deep fry them or microwave them too.
Notes: When preparing for the first time, always try with small quantity. consistency (thickness) of mixture is important for proper spreading of papads.
If mixture is not cooked properly and papads are not dried properly they will not rise while frying.
