Crispy Nippattu is a fried dish. Nippattu / Rice fritters are very famous crunchy fried dish. We can munch it at any time of the day. It is nice to have with a cup of coffee or tea or Juice.


These crispy Nippattu has little Millet flour and chiroti rava /thin variety of rava in it.
I have used rice flour, chenna /hurikadale /pottu kadale, millet flour, chilly powder, jeera, ingh and little rava/semolina in it.
I tried this fried fritters and it was really yummy. Some people do not like very crispy and they want the bite to be bit hard too. I thing Millet flour adds the crunchiness and the bit hardness to Nippattu.

No Onion or No Garlic is used in this Nippattu.
