Vattyappam Recipe is my 120th Post in my Blog

How to make Vattyappam

1) Raw white rice – 2 cups
2) Grated fresh coconut – 3 cups
3) Sugar – ¾ cup
4) Cooked Rice ( Preferably Rose matta- Optional) - ½ cup
5) Yeast – 1  teaspoon
6) Water – ½ cup
7) Cardamom powder – ½ teaspoon
8) Salt – 2 pinch

Soak the white rice in water for about 5-6 hours, Drain the soaked rice. Grind the rice to a fine paste with coconut, sugar, cooked rice & ½ cup of water. Be careful while adding the water, the batter should not be very watery; it has to be in the consistency of idly batter. In the last stage of grinding add yeast, salt &cardamom powder also.

Keep this batter over night or let it ferment for 6-8 hours. Grease flat containers then pour the batter into it (half way of the pan only). Garnish it with cashews and raisins (if using). Steam for about 15-20 minutes, and Take it out from the steamer. Allow it to cool in the pan for about 10 mints and loosen the sides with a knife, then gently take it out and cut it into pieces.
