Urid Papad

I went to a Halal (Halel?) store the other day to pick up a few things. I had no cash, and there was *apparently* a ten dollar min. for checks.
I was rediculously close to the ten dollar mark, so I grabed a bag of "Urid Papads" off the shelf, at a whopping 1.10$ they put me over.

I asked the womyn at the store what they were, as she was ringing them up. She said she never had tried them, but to heat them up and eat them. [The bag said "from India" and the womyn at the store is Pakastani]. It only lists ingredients, no directions.

Well, I just got around to trying them--I put some oil in the pan and the second the Urid hit the cast iron skillet, it bubbled and crinkled up and absorbed all the oil. After eating that one, I felt kind of sick to my stomach.

I still have a bag of maybe 15-20 left. I tried googling; and can find folks selling them online; but no ideas/recipes/suggestions.

I got the black pepper kind.
