I discovered papadum at an Indian food stand at a weekly farmer's market in Oakland, CA. This crackery flatbread is made from lentil, rice or potato flour, and sometimes lightly spiced. A savory salty treat, and a great vehicle for chutney, jam or pate!

Served warm and crispy in Indian restaurants, it is sold in markets in a package of circular, hard, flat sheets. It's got a loooong shelf life, and to prepare, simply microwave, or warm it up over low heat on a frying pan or gas burner like a tortilla (no oil needed). It'll puff up and be ready to eat in less than minutes.

I was pleasantly surprised to find this in the general trough at the buffet on a Norwegian Star cruise.
