Achappam/Rosette Cookies is a very popular and traditional Kerala / Tamil Nadu snack which is incredibly crunchy & delicious. It is called so because of the iron mold used for its preparation. “Achu” in Malayalam means mold and “Appam” means bread. These two words are combined together to form “Achappam” which means “Bread prepared using mold”. If you arent familiar with Achappam, it's a fried cookie kinda snack, may be that's why it's also known as Rose Cookies.
