Baked Nippattu

How about an easy, healthy and savoury tea time snack? How about some Baked Nippattu? 🙂 

This crispy snack from Karnataka is made with flours and spices. It is typically a deep fried dish. However, I have added a healthy twist to it by making Baked Nippattu. 

I hope you have fun making this one. Savour it with a hot cup of chai/coffee. 



Maida / All purpose flour – 1 cup

Rice Flour – ½ cup

Besan – 1 tbsp

Roasted sooji (upma sooji can also be used) – 1 tbsp

Fried gram / Huri kadale – 2 tbsp

Peanuts – ½ cup – roasted and coarsely ground

Green chillies – 6 to 8

Curry leaves – few – finely chopped

Salt to taste

Butter – ¼ cup (cubed)


Dry roast the peanuts, seperate the skin and grind it to a coarse powder. Put it in a big mixing bowl.


Mix all the other ingredients mentioned under the ‘ingredients’ section in to the bowl.


Make sure you mix the butter well into the flour.

Add about 3/4th cup of water slowly till you make a dough not too firm nor too soft.


Preheat the oven to 375F. Roll the nippattu dough into flat small rounds and place them on a baking tray.


Bake for about 15-20 minutes or more depending on when the nipattu gets baked well. Half way through, turn the nippattus on the other side to ensure even baking. 

Once baked, allow them to cool down on a wire rack. Once cooled, serve these mouth watering snack with a hot cup of tea 🙂
