Mother’s Recipe Potato Papad Review – Crunchy And Delicious
Mother’s Recipe Potato Papad is quick to cook and makes for a crunchy snack.
Ask anyone from a Sindhi household what’s the most important side with any meal. There will be a prompt unanimous reply – papad. Papads are an integral part of most Indian meals, no matter which region you live in. Urad dal papad, aloo papad, sabudana papad and chana papads – the varieties are many.
Earlier papads were homemade and were very lovingly dried on the roof before storing them in canisters for year-long use. With the change in times, papads are also now available in the ready-to-cook section. One such brand offering packaged papads is Mother’s Recipe.
We reviewed Udad Papad and Punjabi Masala Papad offered by Mother’s Recipe earlier and now we picked up the potato papad from them. In our Mother’s Recipe Potato Papad review, find out more details about the price, packaging, taste and texture.

Appearance-wise, these are thick and small in size. The tiny specs of red chilli powder and a few cumin seeds are visible on the papads. We cooked the papad using both the given methods of preparation. Below we have covered a detailed review.
Microwave Method : For the microwave method, we cooked the papad for about 45 seconds as mentioned by the brand. Although the papads were crunchy, the taste was not impressive. The papads seemed very dense. We do not recommend this method.
Deep-Frying : After the microwave method, we deep-fried these papads to check on their taste and texture. We deep fried the papads as per the instructions on the pack. These turned out to be super crispy and tasty. There was a prominent flavor of potato which was fresh tasting. These papads are not spicy. The presence of cumin seeds adds to the overall flavor.
Though the salt levels were slightly less, it did not hamper the overall experience. In fact it leaves room for you to add some chaat masala.
