Nippatu is one of the most popular snacks in Karnataka. Although there are different recipes to make Nippatu, all use Rice Flour. You can add some masalas according to your taste.You can either use green chillies( this kind is available in Bakeries in Bangalore)or Red Chilli powder.
Rice flour- 1 cup
Split peas powder/Hurikadale - 1/4 cup
Red Chilli powder/ Green chilli( cut finely)- 1 tbsp
Sesame seeds- 1 tsp
Whole split peas/Hurikadale- 1 tsp
Peanuts- 10-12 coarsely crushed
Coriander finely chopped - 1tsp
Curry leaves (chopped)-6-8
Salt to taste
Oil to deep fry
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and add very little water to make a dough.Take a banana leaf/plastic sheet and place a small size of dough on it and flatten.Remove it carefully without breaking and deep fry in hot oil until it turns golden.Repeat with the remaining dough.
You can store in an air tight container for a week and enjoy Nippatu every afternoon with Tea or Coffee...
