Vattayappam is one of the most simple yet delicious Kerala snacks. It is very easy to prepare and easily digestible. It  is loved by kids and adults alike.

Ingredients:

  1. Rice Flour – 2 cups
  2. Coconut grated – 1 cup
  3. Cooked Rice – 2 handfulls
  4. Sugar – to taste(I added ½ cup)
  5. Cardamom powder – ¼ tsp
  6. Yeast – ½ tsp
  7. Sugar(needed for yeast) – ½ tsp.
  8. Salt – a pinch
  9. Lukewarm water – ¼ glass (for yeast)
  10. Raisins – a few(for garnishing)

Method:

  • In a grinder, grind the Rice flour, Grated coconut, Cooked Rice along with a little water into a smooth batter of medium consistency.
  • Take ¼ glass of lukewarm water and add yeast and ½ tsp of sugar.Allow it to rise.
  • Add this mixture into the above batter.Mix well and keep aside for 2 to 3 hours.
  • After 3 hours, add Sugar(to taste),cardamom powder,salt and mix well.
  • Apply a little ghee/oil in a cake tin and pour the batter into it.Sprinkle a few raisins on the top and steam for 20 – 25 minutes.
  • Remove and cut into slices and Enjoy with a hot cup of tea and Enjoy!,

Notes:

I usually use 1 tsp of vanilla essence instead of Cardamom powder in vattayapam.It might sound odd but it really elevates its taste to another level.
