How long does a pack of raw, dried Indian papad keep once it's opened? There's a best before date on the pack, but it's not mentioned how long they keep once it's opened. The ones I have are the Lijjat Papad brand that's sold internationally. This stuff is pretty dry, so I'm guessing it will remain safe to eat for quite a while though.

  • Unsure, as I tend to use a whole pack at once, but I know that once they are cooked they go stale pretty quickly. – Orbling Jan 18 '11 at 6:10

I haven't really experimented, but if imagining how dry that stuff is and the amount of salt that goes inside one those, I would say in the months/years range. Just keep it in a cool dry place..

Air sealing it will do. Moisture affects papads for some reason.

Another tip : If you fry some papad, keeping them in air sealed bags will stop them from going mushy

We store ours in the freezer in a ziploc bag (this prevents humidity from taking its toll). Lasts years without degradation (not sure how many -- certainly 3 or 4+).
