Baked Nippattu

Nipattu is a popular snack in Karnataka(India) which goes well with a cup of coffee.It has 2 forms, one is baking and the other is deep fried.I have done the baking version which is so popular in Bakeries(Srinivasa Bakery) of Bangalore that they sell within few hours of baking. If you haven't eaten it before you really need to try it....I was very much inspired to do this when I visited my Sister-in-law this summer and she had baked this for us.I even found a recipe in Madhuram's blog and Redchillies blog too.


1cup All purpose flour
1/2cup Onions finely chopped
1-2 Green chillies chopped
1 bunch Cilantro leaves finely chopped
1tsp Baking powder
1tsp Baking soda
1tbsp Melted butter
salt to taste
water for making the dough(warm)


Preheat the oven to 325* F.Mix all the ingredients and make a soft dough.Divide into 15 balls and pat a little and make it like cracker thickness and bake them for 10-12minutes. [Bake for 2-5 minutes more if you need it crispier]

[Note: Don't make the crackers too thin keep it a little thick.You can even add a little rice flour and rava(sooji) to make it crispier]
