Nippattu

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.



2cups Rice flour
1/2cup Maida
1/4cup Gram flour
3tbsp Channadal (soaked in hot water for half an hour)
1tbsp Sesame seeds
1tsp Red chilly powder
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
2tbsp Hot Oil
Salt
Oil for deepfrying

Take together the flours in a large bowl, add the hot oil, salt, asafoetida powder, chilly powder and mix well..Add the soaked channa dal, sesame seeds and knead everything as soft dough..Take a small ball from the dough also take 2 zip lock bags, grease both ziplock bag with oil...place dough ball as sandwich in between the greased bag and place them inside the poori press...i used poori press to make my nippattus easily..its quite easy to make them fast n quick..prick the disc with fork to prevent it from puffing while frying, deep fry in hot oil and fry until they turns golden brown..

Enjoy with hot coffee..can stay for a week in an air tightened box..

Very true Priya.I can still recollect clearly the aroma of mom preparing those crunchy snacks for my snack box every evening when I return home after school.Sometime I would hurry home to catch the aroma and the titbits.Nowadays I just wonder if I would be doing the same when lil angel starts school after a couple of years.I wish i do the same as mom:)

Your snacks are perfect!!!
