Baked Nippattu

Source:Red Chillies

A spicy snack along with a cup of evening coffee / tea sounds wonderful, especially during monsoon season / winters. This baked nippattu is one such crunchy, really yummy snack that I have tried several times before. I must mention that this recipe has not disappointed me even once and thanks to Supriya, I could try these. I somehow hadn't tasted these before in Bangalore and that's what piqued my interest initially when I saw the recipe. However the recipe or the taste has nothing to do with the other spicy snack from Karnataka, nippattu. It is more like madduru vade, another delicacy from the state. Try once and I assure you that it will be a part of your treasured recipes.

2 cups all purpose flour / maida (makes more than 2 dozens)
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp white sesame seeds
1 onion finely chopped
2 -3 green chillies, finely chopped
A handful of cilantro finely chopped
3 tbsp oil
3 - 4 tbsp melted butter
1/4 cup warm water (or adjust accordingly.) 

* Add flour, baking soda, salt, sugar, sesame seeds, onion, chillies and cilantro to a mixing bowl. Mix the ingredients well. Next mix in the oil and butter to the ingredients.
* Add the warm water next gradually and make thick dough. Knead well for a couple of minutes, cover and let it rest for a couple of minutes.
* Preheat the oven to 325 deg F.
* Pinch a small ball of dough . Place it between two thick greased plastic sheets and pat it as thinly as possible. Now remove the top cover, and cut into small rounds using a circle shaped cookie dough or a round lid or a cup. Poke holes with a fork so that they do not puff up while baking. Repeat this process with the remaining dough.
* Place the cut rounds on greased cookie sheets and bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until they brown.(I flipped them once during baking.)
