Nippattu is a very popular Bangalore snack delicacy!Nippattu is usually deep fried in oil ..However this is a  yummy low calorie recipe which is baked instead of deep fried!

  • All purpose flour(Maida) - 1 1/2 cups
  • Rice flour - 1/2 cup
  • Semolina(fine Sooji) - 2 Tbsp
  • Roasted Groundnuts - 1/2 Cup(coarsely ground)
  • Warm water - 1/4 cup or as required
  • Sesame seeds - 3 tsp
  • Oil - 1/3 cup
  • Melted butter - 3 Tbsp
  • Onion -1(finely chopped)
  • Green chilles - 4 to 5(finely chopped)
  • Red chilli powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Coriander leaves -1/2 cup(finely chopped)
  • Curry leaves - 1/2 cup(finely chopped)
  • Baking powder - 1 tsp
  • Sugar - 1 tsp
  • Salt to taste


 Take a mixing bowl and add all the above ingredients in to it and mix well to form a soft dough.

Cover the dough and let it stay for about 30 minutes .

  • Meanwhile Pre heat the oven to 180 degree Celsius.
  • Divide the dough into equal small balls .Flatten each ball in between your hands and arrange them on the baking tray.(Tip: Dip fingers in water while flattening the balls.This prevents the nippattu from sticking to hands.)

  • To get really crispy nipattus, the flattened dough should be really thin.
  • Prick on the circular discs with fork before keeping them in the oven.

  • Bake for about 20 minutes till golden brown in colour. (Check once after 15 minutes to check the status of the nippatu..Make sure you do not over burn it.)

  • Remove from oven and it can stored in airtight containers for a long time!

  • Enjoy the spicy nipattus!
