Hello friends ..
How are u doing ?? Did u miss me ??
I am doing great dears 😍
I am writing here after a long gap.
So, many of my subscribers were complaining that u don’t see me here .. So thought of coming back and keep in touch with u dears..
As I was busy with my YouTube videos, couldn’t able to do the blog.
But I think, I should post the recipe here too once in a week ..Right dears ..
Today I am here with a traditional Kerala, Malabar Recipe- Kalathappam(also known as Kalthappam).
Here I am preparing this in a cooker, u can do the same in a saucepan with a tight lid too ..
So let’s begin
Rice-1cup, Preferably Kaima Rice (jeerakasala ) or U can use white rice (( My one cup is 240 ml )
Jaggery -250 gm -300gm
Cooked rice-1tbsp(any type of rice)
Finely chopped Coconut -2tbsp
Water -1 1/2cup
Soak rice for minimum for4 hours.
Wash well and drain
Then take mixie jar , add rice , cooked rice ,cumin seeds and cardamom (only seeds ) along with 1/2 cup of water.
Grind to a fine paste.
Then add 1/2 cup more water and blend well .. (we have to grind the rice in a small quantity of water first, otherwise we cant grind the rice so nicely)
Pour this finely ground batter to a vessel and keep aside.
In a saucepan add jaggery and pour 1/2 cup of water and melt in medium flame, stirring occasionally.
Then heat 2 tbsp of coconut oil and roast small onions and coconut pieces in to golden color .Keep aside ,dont through the coconut oil we used for frying these .
By this time the jaggery will be ready ,using a strainer, strain it
Add this hot jaggery mix to the rice batter .
Pour with one hand and mix with another hand continuously to avoid lumps.
Now add salt and baking soda and mix well .. (This batter is very loose ,when i measured this batter I got 3cups of batter )
Now take a cooker,I used 5 L aluminium cooker .
Heat the cooker in high flame
Add leftover coconut oil along with another 2 tbsp of coconut oil
Rotate the oil in the sides of the cooker, When the oil is piping hot (the flame should be in high heat )
Pour this slightly hot jaggery rice flour mix to the hot cooker, add fried coconut d onion in the top .
Close the cooker ,remove the weight ,and cook for exactly 1 1/2 min in high flame .
Then after 1 1/2 min cook in low flame , exactly for 15 minutes .
After 15 minutes switch off the flame and keep the cooker in a cool place .
Open the cooker after another 15 minutes.
Check the centre of the kalathappam using a tooth pick or fork ..
If it comes out clean ,that means the kalathappam is cooked well.
So allow the kalathappam to cool completely.
Then take out from the cooker .
Cut into the desired shapes using a sharp knife .
U can see many bee hole like shapes inside the appam 🙂
So enjoy the soft and tasty kalathappam..
Please watch my video to refer the minute details..
Hope u enjoyed my post.
Plz do try and write ur feedback .. Don’t forget to watch my videos too ..
