Kerala Vattayappam

by AnnMathew
Vattayapppam is a steamed rice cake dish usually served for breakfast or served as a tea-time snack. Rice and coconut are ground together and fermented with yeast. No oil is required in the preparation of Vattayappam. Popular in the Christian communities of Kerala, Vattayappam is gentle on stomach and hence regarded as a healthy traditional dish. The sight of the white, soft, round and slightly sweetened cake topped with raisins and cashew nuts is real tempting. The flavor of cardamom in Vattayappam plays havoc to your taste buds. Our soft fluffy Vattayappam recipe is well illustrated and you can include this healthy dish in your family menu. Airy and spongy by texture, Vattayappam completes a royal wholesome breakfast during festive occasions like Easter and Christmas.
