A new dimension in the management of protein energy malnutrition is amylase rich foods. The present study was carried out to develop papad using amylase rich fieldpea and to study the effect of processing on nutritional quality by analysing proximate nutrients, total minerals, total sugars, antinutrients and in vitro protein and in vitro starch digestibility using standard methods. All the values are average triplicate values. The preparation of amylase rich flour from fieldpea was carried out after soaking, germination, drying, dehulling and finally grinding it to fine powder. Papad was prepared using roasting processing treatment. Moisture content of fieldpea papad (8.10%) was significantly (P<0.05) lower than the unprocessed mixture (10.01%). Results indicated that there were non-significant differences in crude protein, crude fat and total ash content of unprocessed mixture as well as processed fieldpea papad. The crude fibre content of unprocessed (raw) mixture was 4.14% whereas processed papad contain 3.4% crude fibre. The carbohydrate content of unprocessed and processed papad differed significantly (P<0.05). In unprocessed mixture and processed papad 125.64 and 114.39 mg/100g of Ca content was present respectively. Processing showed significant (P<0.05) effect on iron content of papad. In the unprocessed mixture 3.41 mg/100g Zn was present while after processing 3.28 mg/100g Zn was present. Total soluble sugar of fieldpea papad (6.87%) differed significantly (P<0.05) from its unprocessed mixture (6.03%). The processing treatment significantly (P<0.05) reduced the level of phytic acid, polyphenols and Trypsin inhibitor activity and improved the in vitro protein digestibility by 87.18 percent and in vitro starch digestibility by 18.92 percent. Thus fieldpea papad can be easily used as a healthy snack. Also because of the low cost it could be easily incorporated in the daily diet.
