We made Pappu Chekkalu (Thattai, Nippattu, Rice Crackers) and Ribbon Murukku for Diwali. During my early days of messing around in the kitchen I was intimidated to prepare Chekkalu like most first-time nervous cooks trying to prepare traditional foods. Its not easy and certain food preparation does require some experience before they are perfected. I now prepare reasonably good chekkalu. 🙂
There are many variations to prepare chekkalu. Today, I’m sharing the recipe which requires rice flour. For those who are intimidated to prepare them, I’d encourage you to try a small batch following this fool proof recipe which works for me. These lovely savory munchables make a great tea time, travel or entertaining snack.
