How to make Bakery Style Baked Nippattu Recipe

  1. To begin making the Bakery Style Baked Nippattu recipe, take maida, oil and butter in a mixing bowl. Mix nicely with the tips of your fingers till the mixture looks like breadcrumbs. Add more oil if required to get the breadcrumb like texture. 

  2. To the flour add milk powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, pepper powder, sesame seeds, onion, green chillies, coriander leaves and curry leaves. Mix the ingredients nicely with your hand. Add warm water slowly, little by little and make a tight firm dough.

  3. Knead the dough well, cover and keep aside for 10 to 15 minutes. Meanwhile preheat the oven at 180 deg C for 10 minutes.

  4. Once the resting time for dough is over, divide the dough into lemon sized balls. Take 1 ball, place it in between 2 thick greased plastic sheets and roll gently to form a 3 to 4 inch diameter thin disc.

  5. Gently place the nippattu on a greased baking tray. Poke the nippattu with a fork randomly to avoid fluffing up.

  6. Continue with the remaining dough in a similar way. Bake the nippattu for about 15 to 20 minutes at 170 degree Celsius. Midway flip once after 10 minutes.
