Posted in : GOKULASHTAMI/JANMASHTAMI RECIPES, SNACKS / BAKED / DEEP FRIED / STEAMED on by : Divya Suresh Tags:

Nippattu is a crispy, spicy and delicious rice crackers Particularly from Bengaluru & Mysuru region. It is a signature dish of people of a particular community called shetty community (Telugu speaking) in Bengaluru & Mysuru region, and I must say they are the experts of this particular snack. In fact in Bengaluru/Mysuru nippattu is also known as shetty nippattu.  I’m blessed to have many shetty friends in my life for they are humble and very simple, friendly people. And one such friend is Aruna Prasad who happens to be one of my best friend too. I learnt this recipe from her very long back and I always do it in the same method and never thought of making any changes to the original recipe. There two versions of nippattu ie… baked and deep fried. Today I’m going to share the deep fried version of nippattu explained with step by step pictures.
