Papadom (also known as Papad in Northern India or Appadam in Telugu and Pappadum in the rest of south India; spellings vary) is a thin, crisp disc-shaped Indian food typically based on seasoned dough made from black gram (urad flour), fried or cooked with dry heat. Flours made from other sources such as lentils, chickpeas, rice, or potato, can be used. Papadoms are typically served as an accompaniment to a meal in India, or as an appetiser or snack, sometimes with toppings such as chopped onions, chutneys or other dips and condiments. In certain parts of India, papadums which have been dried but not precooked are used in curries and vegetable dishes.
In Kerala, guruvayoor pappadums are very popular as an ingredient of Kerala Sadhya. In Kerala, people from the Pandaaram caste prepare pappadums. In North India, the lentil variety is more popular and is usually called 'papad'.
