Learn how to make sweet-potato papads at home. Whenever I make papads, half I make plain and the other half with masala. So in the recipe also I have explained both plain and masala sweet-potato papads.

You can use either sweet-potato or normal potato to make these papads. Both are very tasty but sweet-potato papad will be little hard compared to potato papads. I have posted another raw jack fruit papad recipe on this website. It will be fun making papads at home, especially if you have kids. So learn how to make papads, make them at home and enjoy!!.
