Baked Nippattu / Onion Cracker

Bangalore/ Bengaluru Iyengar Bakery Special Nippattu. Bangalore Iyengar bakeries are famous for their Khara Biscuits, Khara Bun, Nippattu, Alu buns, Masala Sandwich as spicy snack and Dil pasand and Dil Kush as sweet savory. These were one of the places for us to hangout with our friends in my college days. Nostalgic days.

Traditionally these Nippattu’s are crispy and very tasty fried savory. I have baked version of them. A perfect tea/ coffee time snack accomplishment.
