Method:

  1. In a mixing bowl add all the ingredients other than oil and mix well. Add water little by little to make a soft and smooth dough

  2. Make small lemon sized balls out of the dough. Take each ball and place it on a greased plastic paper. Then cover it with another plastic cover and place a flat lid or bowl on top of the ball

  3. Press the lid or bowl to make a thin circle like thattai. We are using lid or bowl to get all thattai in same shape. We can also use hands to press the dough balls to make thattai. But using lid or bowl to press will make all the thattai looks even and same thickness. Repeat this step for the rest of the dough

  4. Using a fork prick each thattai in few places. This will prevent the bubbles forming up in hot oil. Let the thattai gets dried up for few minutes. Meanwhile, heat oil in a pan and when the oil is hot enough, keep the flame in medium and add 3-4 thattai in oil. Deep fry them till they are crispy and the sizzling sound starts to suppress. Remove the crispy nippatalu from oil and place it in paper towel to drain excess oil. Repeat the same step till all the nippatalu are fried.

  5. Tasty and crispy Nippatalu (Andhra Thattai) is now ready to serve!
