Nippattu / Rice Crackels / Chekkalu

We have always bought this from the store when in India. I did never ever think that I would be making these at home. When our home is far away from home land, this is what happens. Its great learning however.

Ingredients :
Rice flour : 1 cup
Cumin Seeds : 1 tea spn
Channa dal : 2 tbl spns
Curry leaves : 2 strings (finely chopped)
Green Chilly : 1 No. (finely chopped)
Butter : 1 tbl spn
Ginger : 1 tea spn paste
Salt & Oil for frying
Method of preparation : Soak channa dhal for about an hour. Mix all the above ingredients except the Oil. Add water and knead this to a thick dough. It should not be watery or sticky. Make this into balls of table tennis ball size. Press them flat on a greased plastic sheet or cover. Deep fry them in medium flame till they the turn golden brown. Nippatts are ready.

A good time pass snack. You can store them in an airtight container even for a month.
