How to make Rajasthani Papad Ki Sabji

Roast the papads. You can fry the papads in oil, roast them on flame directly or microwave them for 2 minutes.

Add ½ cup water in the curd and whisk well.

Now add tomato-ginger-green chilly paste, followed by red chilly powder and sauté the masala until oil starts separating from it. 

After sauteing the masala add 1 cup water, cover and allow it to simmer. When gravy starts simmering, add curd, little by little and stir the gravy constantly until it simmers again, else curd can coagulate. Now add salt and some green coriander in the gravy. Break the papads in small chunks and add them to the gravy. Cover the sabzi and cook on low flame for 2 minutes.
