So tonight I made a dhal for dinner, you know. And I thought mmm I would like some pappadums. So I looked on the packet and it said I could fry them or grill them. I have never grilled them before so it seemed like a worthwhile thing to do. So I turned on the griller, and stuck em in. They set on fire! Yes, on FIRE! So I did a girly scream and my boyfriend came in and pulled out the griller tray and tipped them in the sink.
The moral of this story: pappadums are a lot more flammable than, say, polenta or pita bread.
