Achappam, a Nostalgic memories of yet another delicacy from God’s own country. Achappam is a traditional snack very popular during Christmas season which is incredibly delicious and crunchy.
An iron mould is required for preparing Achappam. Equal proportions of fresh rice flour, maida flour, powdered sugar, eggs and coconut milk is mixed gently to prepare a slighly thick dosa batter consistency. The iron mould is first heated in boiling oil, then dipped into the thick batter and finally re-immersed in hot oil. After a minute, shake the mould and the Achappam will come off easily. Fry the other side too to a golden brown color by gently flipping over. Drain in tissue papers to remove excess oil, cool and store in air tight containers.
Achappams are served as tea-time snacks. Enjoy the snack.
