When overseas, Evil Minion #1 saw papadums packaged in cardboard cans, just like Pringles Potato Chips.  Wish we could get those here!  On the other hand, being able to control what kind of cooking oil is used is not a bad thing.  Just time consuming.

I've seen the canned poppadoms here, but they were very expensive, around $4 for a small can, when a pack of the uncooked ones is a dollar or so.  

I don't use oil when I cook them, just a hot, well seasoned cast iron griddle, then set the flat, clean  bottom of  a moderately heavy saucepan on top, when they start to puff, which is only a few seconds, flip them and cook that side, also weighted.  Virtually no oil at all, the trick is holding them down to the hot pan, since they want to curl up and away from the heat.

(on vacation in Virginia Beach this year instead of Pennsic, the minion wanted to see the ocean for the first time in her life).
