Hi Deepak, you should not soak the papad in water to soften it, just dampen it. Also once stuffed, pat the samosas dry on kitchen towel so that they are not moist when you put into hot oil. The oil should be very hot or else the papad does not fry well. Drain well before serving.

This definitely looks interesting.  I was wondering how people change the shape of papad.  One of the recipes on the site has the papad in the shape of a taco shell and I was trying to figure out how that was done.  Now I'll have to try it.

You can change the shape of papad by just wetting it with water. Hope this helps :)

No that is the trick....as mentioned in the directions, wet the papad completely with water then it becomes soft and can be folded
