NIPPAT

With Diwali not too far away, it was time to start making some tasty munchies. I try my best to make something different each year. This time I started with Nippat. Still a lot more things to be made and posted too, but for now enjoy this recipe!

This is what you’ll need

Rice flour: 2 cups

Roasted gram: 3/4cup

Chana dal ( bengal gram dal): 1tbsp

Udad dal: 2tbsp

Chilli powder: 1tsp

Hing (asafoetida): 1/2tsp

Curry leaves: 10-12

Green chillies: 2

Butter: 2tbsp

Salt to taste

Oil for frying

Let’s get cooking

1. Soak the chana dal for around half an hour.

2. Dry roast the gram dal and udad dal. When cool grind to a fine powder.

3. Finely chop the green chillies and the curry leaves.

4. Put all the ingredients in a bowl and knead to a dough with water. You should be able to flatten the dough with the palm of your hand.

5. Take a plastic sheet and grease with oil. Spread some dough on it and flatten it with your hand, taking care that it doesn’t break. Cut into rounds using a cutter. Make slits so the nippat remains flat when frying. (The flatter you make it the crispier it becomes)

6. Carefully slide each nippat into the hot oil and deep fry well on both sides until golden brown.

7. Once cool store in an air tight container.

Approximate preparation and cooking time: 40 minutes

Serves: 4-6
