Take 4-5 papads and keep them ready for frying.
Heat oil in a deep frying pan or kadai over medium heat. Ensure that the oil is hot enough by dropping a small piece of papad into the oil; if it sizzles and rises to the surface immediately, the oil is ready.
Gently slide one papad into the hot oil and press it down with a slotted spoon to ensure even frying.
Fry the papad for 10-15 seconds on each side or until it turns golden brown and puffs up.
Remove the fried papad from the oil using a slotted spoon and place it on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil.
Repeat the process for the remaining papads.
