Else you can keep the plate in your room or the kitchen, you can cover the Mango Papad with a thin cloth or net. It will take more than 2 days also (mine will take 3 days)

Once the Mango Papad has dried completely, first scratch it from sides and take it out with a knife. As you see in below pic, it's very thin, that I really want it.
overturn the plate as you hold it with your hands.

and cut it according to your desired shapes and sizes. Garnish with Cashew nut or you roll out this cashew inside the aam-papad.
