Except for papad, mix the remaining ingredients (onion, tomato, cooking oil, coriander, salt, dry peanuts, black pepper, and chat masala/chicken masala) in a bowl together. We can even add some green pepper or red chilly powder to make the masala spicy.
After mixing them, check the salt for your taste. Now the masala is ready.

Which Papad is best to make a recipe for masala papad?
You can either use urad dal papad or a mixture of both urad and moong dal papads. As for me, I am using Suraj papad because it is very good in taste. But if you don’t have any of these then you can use any kind of papad for your masala.
Roast or Fry Papad?
Personally, for me, I like papad that is deep-fried in oil rather than roast. And talking about taste, its taste is also different than roast. Most of the people have their own taste so I preferred you can choose what you want or While making a recipe for masala papad Its better you make with fry papad.
