Papadums are a type of flatbread common in India. Restaurants serve them as snacks or appetizers, and you commonly eat papadums with a variety of toppings.
Papadums are usually toasted to make them brittle, but you can also wrap larger, un-toasted papadums around a filling of meat and vegetables. Papadums are typically high in starch, like most types of bread.
A papadum contains a total of 25 calories. Papadums provide 1.25 percent of the daily value for calories, assuming a standard daily diet of 2,000 calories.
Papadums have a total of four grams of carbohydrates. This total includes two grams of dietary fiber. The American Heart Association recommends eating 5 to 30 grams of fiber daily, so a papadum could contribute to your daily fiber intake by almost half of the lowest recommended amount.

Papadums also don't contain any cholesterol. The protein content in a papadum is two grams, which is also impacted by toppings and fillers like chicken or lamb, which will up the protein value.
