Savoury Onion Crackers | Baked Nippattu

Saturday, February 04, 2012

I've been on a baking spree since a couple of days & since we don't have a sweet tooth, its various kinds of savory cookies & crackers that have been made .. Baked Nippattu or Savoury Onion Crackers are very famous in Bangalore & Iyengar Bakeries here are known for their super crunchy Baked Nippatus.

These are very easy to make & you can hardly ever go wrong with them, unless you overbake & burn them. But my only worry was the texture since I was using whole wheat flour & oats instead off All Purpose Flour. They came out super crunchy & you cannot make out its made out of whole wheat unless mentioned


Savoury Onion Crackers | Baked Nippattu


Makes 12-15 Nippatus

You Will Need:

  • 1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup instant oats
  • 1 big onion - very finely chopped
  • 6 green chillies - finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup Oil - I used Sunflower Oil
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Salt as per taste
  • A handful of chopped fresh coriander

How To:
  • In a pan, roast oats slightly & make a fine powder.
  • In a bowl, add all the ingredients one by one except water. Mix well & add water little at a time and knead well to make a soft dough. cover with a damp cloth & set aside for 10 mins.
  • Preheat the oven to 180C. Pinch small balls of dough & flatten them with your hands, as evenly as possible. If you wish to get even edges, cut the with a round cookie cutter or a lid
  • Arrange them on a greased baking tray. Prick all over with a fork. Bake for 25-30 mins or until golden brown. I flipped the crackers, 15 mins into the baking time
  • Allow them to cool & store them in air-tight jars

Enjoy with some Filter Kaapi / Masala Chai ..
