After I discovered papadums/papar at an Indian restaurant, I went to the store and bought a package. You're supposed to fry them in oil to get them to puff and crisp. I decided to take a more low-fat approach. Don't ask what the logic was behind that bright idea---they're already full of oil.
So I popped them in the toaster oven. They were browning nicely, then foof! They were flaming disks. I quickly unplugged the whole toaster oven and brought it outside to extinguish the flames. From that day forward, my husband would not let me cook papadums/papar in the house.
