Recipe  |  ಮಾಡುವ ವಿಧಾನ:

Remove the outer thin cover of jackfruit seeds and put them in hot water for about 5-10 mins.

Remove the thin brown coloured outer cover by rubbing it on a stone as shown in the picture below or using knife.

Mash this as shown in the picture below.

Put this in a pressure cooker, add around 2 cups of water and cook them well (5-6 whistles). Drain the cooked water only if it is bitter.

Soak the bengal gram seeds in water for about 2 hrs. Drain the water and keep it aside.

Microwave the peanuts for about 2-3 mins or dry roast them in a pan and keep them aside for about 10 mins. Remove the outer skin and keep them aside.

Put 5 cups Rice flour in a vessel. Crush the peanuts and add it to the same bowl. Put curry leaves, ginger and green chillies in a mixer and crush them as shown in the picture below. Add salt, chilly powder and sesame seeds. 

Keep 1/2 cup oil in a Pan and heat. Once it is hot, add asafoetida, switch off the flame and add the hot oil to this flour mix.

Mix this ingredients very well by rubbing in between the hands.
Put the cooked jackfruit seeds in a mixer, add required amount of water and grind it into smooth paste as shown in the picture below. Add soaked bengal gram seeds and mix them well.

Add enough water, kneed and prepare the stiff dough as shown in the picture below.

Make small lemon sized balls from the mixture. Apply little oil to one big and small plastic sheets, arrange the balls as shown in the picture below. 

Place the small plastic sheet on each ball, pat it using a flat bowl as shown in the picture below.

Keep oil in a thick bottommed vessel and heat. Once the oil is hot, put the patted Nippattus in oil and deep fry until they turn golden in colour.

Once they are cooled to room temperature, store them in an airtight container. Serve along with coffee or tea. The above mentioned ingredients will make around 100 Nippattus.

Tips (ಸಲಹೆ): 
 * Adding hot oil & mixing it properly before adding the Water and ground Jackfruit seeds makes the Nippattus crunchy 
 * Nippattus should be properly immersed in oil & deep fried in medium flame with frequent stirring
 * ನೀರು ಹಾಗು ರುಬ್ಬಿದ ಬೇಳೆಯನ್ನು ಹಾಕುವ ಮೊದಲು ಹಿಟ್ಟಿಗೆ ಬಿಸಿ ಎಣ್ಣೆ ಹಾಕಿ ಚೆನ್ನಾಗಿ ಕಳಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳುವುದರಿಂದ ನಿಪ್ಪಟ್ಟು ಮೃದುವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. ಹಿಟ್ಟನ್ನು ಕಲಸಿದ ಕೂಡಲೇ ಮಾಡಿ.
 * ನಿಪ್ಪಟ್ಟನ್ನು ಎಣ್ಣೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಸಂಪೂರ್ಣವಾಗಿ ಮುಳುಗಿಸಿ ಆಗಾಗ ತಿರುವುತ್ತಾ ಮಧ್ಯಮ ಉರಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಕರಿಯಿರಿ
