Chippi/ Green Gram Cookie

Wow there's only two more weeks for Diwali, I'm sure many of you are very busy preparing for the celebration. From shopping for new clothes, painting house, cleaning house, preparing cookies especially traditional ones. Okay, I have started mine by making cookies that have been order by my friends and other customers, to name a few Chippi, Almond London, Sooji cookies, Pineapple tarts, Chocolate chips cookies, Peanut cookies and a few others.

Today I made Chippi, this is my mom's signature cookie many relatives of mine loves this, usually this is the one which finishes within a week. This doesn't take much of your time if anyone assist you in making but I have done it alone and it took me around 45 minutes for four small bottles.

Let me share how did I make this Chippi;


4 cups of rice flour
2 cups of green gram flour
1/4 cup of white sesame seeds
1 cup of coconut milk (thin)
2 tbsp of butter
2 tbsp of oil
5 cups of oil to fry the Chippi
Salt to taste

Dry roast rice flour and green gram flour, constantly stir it do not burn. Keep aside. Simmer coconut milk with salt, do not boil it. 

In a bowl add, dry roasted flour, white sesame seeds, and butter, mix well then slowly add the coconut milk. Knead the dough well by adding the coconut milk little by little until a well mixed dough is formed. Apply oil to the dough and cover and leave for 5 minutes while preparing hot oil.

Take some dough according to your cookie press

Insert in cookie press and cover

Line some news paper and press the dough on it, like the picture above

Using a knife cut the dough into diamond shape

Collect all the cut dough and transfer into a plate

Now deep fry the dough in hot oil for 5 minutes or until the chippi turn golden brown, 
drain the chippi and let it cool before serving or storing in a container

Now our Chippi is ready to be served

Do try and let me know how it turned out for you!
