I am just popping in quickly today to post a savory nippattu recipe that can enhance the food glory on this Gokulashtami festival. We have some really delicious things going on in the food department right now as we are just 12 days away from Lord Krishna’s birthday celebrations. Starting from listing out all the super delicious condiments to prepare, making many trips to grocery shop in order assemble all the required ingredients, cleaning them out and setting up extra space in the kitchen counter to the preparations. So it’s all excitement and over-excitement to welcome the BIG DAY.
I can no longer live without this blog thing, so I am posting back to back savory-sweet posts on the eve. The basic nippattu recipe has flours, nuts and spices. Combining the flours, spices and crumbled nuts with required water you end up with a dough that can be shaped in to discs.
You have two ways to shape nippattu. You can scoop lemon sized dough and pat on your palm and then arrange them on a plate to get them deep fried. Second way is to rolling big lemon sized dough to medium thick chapati and marking discs on it by pressing a sharp edged lid on the same. (You can refer the step-wise pictures.) I used this method because as a food photography freak, I love the uniform shaped nippattu than it’s counterpart.
Stack of nippattu one over the other stored in a transparent glass jar would empty in no time when kids are around. So snacking time is ON.
