8 servings (serving size: 1 puppodum)

Puppodum, a wafer-thin bread, is popular throughout India. Look for puppodums with the Indian foods in your supermarket. To add smoky flavor, add 1/2 teaspoon toasted cumin, lightly crushed, to the garlic spread.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°.

Step 2

Remove white papery skin from garlic heads (do not peel or separate the cloves). Wrap each head separately in foil. Bake at 400° for 45 minutes; cool 10 minutes. Separate cloves; squeeze to extract garlic pulp. Discard skins.

Step 3

Combine the garlic, cilantro, tomato paste, oil, and chiles.

Step 4

Microwave 1 puppodum at a time at HIGH 40 to 50 seconds or until edges curl and entire puppodum is cream colored, turning as necessary to avoid uncooked spots. Spread 1 tablespoon garlic spread over each puppodum.
