Papri is the most essential part of any chat. To make this we need to make dough of maida, besan, salt and water. We need to spread the dough and cut small circles out of it which will be fried in mustard oil. These can be eaten with a masala and curd, and this is the one which is used to make papri chat and our very own pani puri.
