Happolu means spicy Papad in Konkani. My mo makes variety of happolu like batate/potato happolu, jeevkadgi/breadfruit happolu, ponsa/jackfruit happolu, keerla/ bamboo shoot happolu, kele/raw banana happolu and this one that is Red chilli papad. I wish to take pictorials of happolu that my Amma does and post it here, may be soon. I am not a big fan of these Red Chilli Papad like I am of the other ones. Yet I love this dish though I do not like the papad as it is ;).
This is a kind of Papad salad with coconut and coconut oil. It just tastes yum when served with steaming hot rice and dal.
