Nipattu is a very popular spicy South Indian snack.It is very common in bangalore bakeries.
Nipattu is usually a deep fried snack.Here is the low calorie version of this yummy snack
  •  Maida (All purpose flour)-1 1/2cups
  • Rice flour-1/2cup
  • Semolina(sooji)-2tbsp
  • Groundnuts-1/2cup(roasted,and coarsely ground )
  • Warm water-1/4cup or as required
  • Sesame seeds -3tsp
  • Oil-1/3 cup
  • Melted butter-4 Tbsp
  • onion(finely chopped)-1big
  • baking soda-1tsp
  • green chillies (finely chopped)-3
  • Red chilli powder-1/2tsp
  • chopped coriander leaves-1/2cup
  • Chopped curry leaves-1/2cup
  • Sugar-1tsp
  •  Salt-to taste

Mix all the above ingredients to a soft pliable dough.

Cover and let it rest for 1/2 an hour.
Pre-heat oven 350 degree F

Divide the dough into equal small balls
Flatten each ball in between your hands and arrange them on the baking tray.Dip fingers in water while flattening the balls.This prevents the nippattu from sticking to hands.
To get really crispy nipattus, flatten the dough really thin
Prick on the circular discs with fork before keeping them in the oven.
Bake till golden brown in colour. ( approx 20 min)
 Cool and store in an airtight container.
