Servings: 10-12 nipattus

1 cup plain flour
1/4 cup puffed gram (phutana or dalia) flour

1 tsp. sesame seeds
10-12 peanuts coarsely crushed
1/2 tsp. red chilli powder
salt to taste
2 tbsp. oil
oil to deep fry


Mix all ingredients, except oil to deep fry.

Add very little water at a time, to make a pliable dough.

Take 2 4"x4" squares of polythene (cut and use a clean milk bag).

Grease one side of each.

Take a pingpong ball-sized dough, shape into round.

Place on one sheet, greased side up.

Cover with other sheet, greased side down.

Press with a flat surface, like the bottom of a heavy steel container.

Pick up carefully and let into the hot oil.

Repeat for more and fry a few at a time.

Fry on low/medium heat. Till golden and crisp.

Note: If the cracker is too hard, add some oil to the dough.
If it breaks in the oil, add some riceflour and knead again.

Reviewer: Kalpana

I always struggled with the texture and the softness while making this appetizer. I tried your recipe and it came out decently presentable. Thank you and keep posting more recipes.
