bun nippat masala
'Bun Nippat' is a typical South Indian Burger which is a typical Bangalore style of  chaat and is available only at few places even in Bengaluru.A bun is stuffed with Nippat(Rice cracker) and south Indian style salad - onion-carrot mixture and is topped with spiced peanuts and few spices.The preparation process is so simple that if you have all the ingredients ready,it hardly takes 15 mins to assemble everything but it tastes really delicious.

The secret for a good Bun Nippat is a good Nippat and tasty Congress Kadalebeeja(spicy peanuts),I usually get all these goodies from Bangalore.Whenever I get Nippats(Rice crackers) from Bangalore I do no miss preparing this Bun Nippat  and Nippat masala as I love these chaats very much. One can use regular Bun but you can replace it with khara bun if you have it in hand,I like it either ways. I usually do not add cheese to my Bun Nippat but if you are a cheese lover, go for a cheese slice and call it as 'Bun Nippat Cheese'.This chaat is quite filling and hence can be served as a snack or as a light breakfast or dinner.

  • Slice the Buns horizantally into two halves and apply butter and roast them on tawa until its slightly browned.Remove the buns and keep them on a plate.
  • Apply 1-2 tsp green chutney on  one side of the bun(lower side) and 1-2 tsp of  sweet imli chutney on the other side of the bun(top side).You can apply both the chutneys on both the cut sides of the buns.This quantity is personally your choice and according to your taste buds.
  • Place a nippat on each green chutney smeared bun and apply green chutney and imli chutney according to your preference.
  • Take a handful of onion-carrot-coriander mixture and place 1 tbsp of mixture on each nippat.
  • Sprinkle few chopped tomatoes all over.
  • Sprinkle a pinch of salt,red chili powder and chaat masala on it.Sprinkle them according to your taste buds.
  • Next comes the layer of sev and congress kadalekayi.Be generous with this as it gives a nice taste to the masala.

Serve the buns immediately.

  • There is no hard rule for the measurements in the recipe.You can play with those ingredients and also can tweak in the recipe according to your taste buds.
  • You can use jeera powder instead of chaat masala in the above recipe.
  • You can even use grated cheese instead of a cheese slice.
  • I did not use cheese,sev and tomatoes in the recipe as it was not available with me at that moment.But all these ingredients makes this chaat even tastier.
