 Nipattu Indian Recipe


Mix all ingredients, except oil to deep fry. Add very little water at a time, to make a pliable dough. Take 2 4"x4" squares of polythene (cut and use a clean milk bag). Grease one side of each. Take a pingpong ball-sized dough, shape into round. Place on one sheet, greased side up.
Cover with other sheet, greased side down. Press with a flat surface, like the bottom of a heavy steel container. Pick up carefully and let into the hot oil. Repeat for more and fry a few at a time. Fry on low/medium heat. Till golden and crisp.
Note: If the cracker is too hard, add some oil to the dough.
If it breaks in the oil, add some riceflour and knead again.

Making time: 30 minutes
Makes: 10-12 nipattus
