“Kaara Sippi” is a type of snack or appetizer that is popular in South India, especially in Tamil Nadu. It is made by mixing together rice flour, chili powder, salt, and water to form a dough, which is then shaped into small pieces and deep-fried until crispy.
The name “Kaara Sippi” comes from the Tamil words “kaara,” meaning spicy, and “sippi,” which refers to the shape of the snack, resembling tiny twigs or sticks. The spiciness of the snack can be adjusted by varying the amount of chili powder used.
Kaara Sippi is often served as an accompaniment to tea or coffee, or as a crunchy snack to enjoy on its own. It is also a popular snack to serve during festive occasions and celebrations in South India.
