Thattai (Nuppitu)

This is a savory snack i had prepared for Diwali but hardly had time to post this. his is something similar to nuppitu which you will find in any churmuri stall in Mysore. This was my 1st attempt at making them and loved the way they came out, and when bloggers post step to step pics it becomes much more simpler to understand a recipe. I suck at step by step pics and hardly can take clicks of the whole process.


Reicpe Source  Sharmis Passion

Makes 30 No’s 


Rice Flour 2 cups

Urad dal Flour 1/8 cup

Dalia/Roasted gram dal 1/2 cup

chana dal 1 tbsp

Butter 1 1/2 tbsp

Curry leaves 10 no’s

salt to taste

Sesame seeds 1 tbsp

R.chilli powder 1 tsp


oil to deep fry


Prepare urad dal flour

Take 1/2 cup urad dal and dry roast them till slightly brown in color.

when cooled grind to a smooth and fine powder.

Seive and use as required.

Soak chana dal for 15 mins.

Dry roast rice flour for a min and keep aside

Dry roast dalia and when cooled grind to a fine powder

In a bowl mix all the ingredients from rice flour to R.chilli and mix nicely.

Add enough water to make a smooth and soft dough..It should not be very sticky so be careful while adding water.

Take 2 plastic sheets and grease both of them.

Take a big ball sized of the dough and roll it between 2 sheets. roll it thinly and prick all over.

Cut rounds using a round cutter or else a lid of a bottle will also do.

Heat oil in a pan for frying and drop the thattai’s in hot oil and fry them on a medium flame till brown in color.

Let cool and store in a jar.


Adding some halved roasted and soaked peanuts will also be a good addition.
