Snacks are really very important for kids after having a long day in schools and colleges, during those evening time snacks, most of the kids goes for biscuits with chocolates or rarely for savouries, when i was kid my mom used to make out many savouries, and the aroma of frying those savouries makes us hungry once we enter our home after a long hectic day, now life is running like anything and its kinda hard for us to make out savouries or sweets atleast twice a week, i usually make out or plan during weekends for our evening snacks where i used to prepare many savouries in small quantity, after seeing Latha's Nippattu (We call as thattais), my plan for making out onion pakodas changed immediately and went for her nippattu, which was quite easy to prepare where she prepared her nippattu with rice flour, maida and gram flour, adding maida was completely new for me coz my mom used to make out thattais with rice flour and gram flour, u can check my thattais here which is completely different from Latha's nippattu, i didnt used peanuts and roasted gram in this deep fried beauties else i have followed each and every step from Latha's nippattu wents for..Thanks a lot Latha for sharing this delicious, crispy and prefect evening snacks..We loved it.
