How to Make
- Powder the roasted gram and peanuts coarsely.
- Take rice flour, maida, sesame and powdered roasted gram and peanuts, salt and chilly powder in a plate and mix.
- Heat 2 tbsp of oil and pour it on the flour mixture and mix well.
- Divide the flour into 4 parts.
- Take one part of the flour and add water little by little and make thick dough.
- Roll out small balls from the dough and press them between two greased plastic sheets to make flat nippats.
- Fry these in hot oil.
- Maintain medium flame throughout and roast them until they turn golden brown on both the sides.
- Continue the same process for the other three parts of the dough as well. (Don’t skip partitioning, this is to avoid the dough becoming dry and dark.)
- Finally drain the nippat on tissues and store them in air tight containers.
