Papadi Chat - A low fat version using panini maker

In quarantine I found a lot of sparingly used and forgotten gadgets and decided to put them to use. Many of us have a panini maker that is a part of our kitchen gadget collection. We use it once in a while and then stash it away for the rest of the time. Panini maker is often used to make quesadilla or panini sandwiches. A few weeks ago, I over toasted the tortialla and it tasted crunchy and crisp. I thought it would be great to use as a papadi and make some low fat chaat.
