notes:

  • firstly, in case you are making in large quantity, don’t add water to whole mix. instead add water in batches to prevent nippattu turning soggy.
  • also nippatu taste great when prepared spicy and crunchy.
  • most noteworthy, do not make too soft dough as they absorb oil and hard dough will be too hard to bite.
  • additionally, pat them into disk to make in traditional way. however i prefer to roll as they are less time consuming and also more presentable.
  • also, fry on medium flame like of chakli, else the inner part of nippatu will be uncooked.
  • finally, nippatu or thattai stays fresh for 10-15 days when stored in an airtight container.
