It is a crispy and spicy snack which is prepared for festivals. It is easy to make recipe with simple ingredients. You can prepare this couple of days in advance too. It stays fresh for up to 10 days. So here's Nippattu for all those nutty flavor lovers! 

Rice flour                              1 cup
All Purpose Flour                   ¼ cup
Asafetida powder                  ¼ Teaspoon
Ghee -                                  2 Teaspoon
 Salt                                      To taste
  Oil                                       for Deep frying
Grind Coarsely
Fried gram dal/pottu kadalai      1/4 cup
Peanuts                                   ¼ cup
Grind Paste
 Dry Coconut grated                 1/2 Cup
 Curry Leaves                          few
Byadagi Red Chilies -               5 -10 ( based on your spice level)
 For Soak and Drain
Moong Dal                            1 Tablespoon.
Chenna Dal                          1 Tablespoon

  • Soak the moong dhal and Channa dhal in water for 30 mins. Drain it and keep aside.
  • Grind Peanuts and Roasted Split Gram coarsely.   Keep aside.
  • Grind dry coconut, red chilies and curry leaves to a fine paste.  Keep aside.
  • Mix together all the ingredients (except Oil for frying) along with the ground mixture using Water to make firm dough.
  • Divide the dough to small lemon sized balls.
  • Now, heat the oil for deep frying in a kadai or pan on medium flame.
  • Cut some plastic sheets into square shaped pieces. Spread some Oil over this. Take a small ball of the dough and flatten them to make a circular shape on the plastic sheet.
  • Heat Oil in a pan and deep fry these discs till crisp. Repeat the same procedure with rest of the dough.
  • Drain them on kitchen napkins to remove excess oil.
  • Let it cool to room temperature and store it in air-tight containers.  

  • Always use freshly ground rice flour(flour mill or home made) instead of the one available in grocery stores for good and crispy Nippattu..Rice flour quality is the key factor for the taste and texture. If the rice flour is very finely ground(like what we get in grocery stores) it will result in hard Nippattu ,if it is mill ground with a slight coarse texture they yield good crackers.
  • use spicing as per tolerance.
  • If the Nippattu are becoming soft , they are not properly cooked .
