Baked Millet & Sago Nippattu / Thinai Javvarisi Thattai / Korralu Nippattu, a healthy Diwali savory made from millet flour. I have tried this thattai with Foxtail Millet Flour. But you can also prepare it with any millet flour or wheat flour. You can try it with any combination.
I have also added curry leaves, which makes it more flavorful. Last year, I had shared regular Thattai recipe made with rice flour and then deep fried. You can also add pottukadalai / roasted gram & bengal gram / channa dal along with other ingredients. For a healthy version, I tried baking these thattai. And it turned out too crispy. For regular version, you can deep fry them. Lets check the recipe,
