Christmas Snacks - Achappam & Kuzhalappam

There are some special snacks that are prepared in Kerala during the Christmas season. Achappam & Kuzhalappam are some of the special snacks made during that time. These are some of my favorites and I decided to try making them this Christmas.

ACHAPPAM

Ingredients

2 cups  rice  flour
1 cup coconut milk
1 egg
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp black  sesame seeds

Method

Mix together all the ingredients to form a batter.  The batter should be a little thinner than dosa batter.

Heat oil in a pan. Heat the achappam mould in the hot oil.

When the oil & the mould are hot, dip the hot mould into the batter. Dip it back quickly into the hot oil.

Shake the mould slightly to loosen the achappam from the mould. Fry till golden brown on both sides.

Remove from hot oil & drain on a paper towel.


Once the achappam has cooled to room temperature, store in an airtight container.

KUZHALAPPAM

Ingredients

2 cups rice flour
1 cup coconut milk
a handful of pearl onions (finely chopped)
1 tsp jeera
1 tsp black sesame seeds
salt to taste

Method

Heat oil in a pan.

Knead together all the ingredients into a firm dough.

Divide into small balls & roll out into a circle.


Wrap the dough circle around your finger or a metal tube. Carefully drop into hot oil & deep fry till it is crisp & golden brown.

Remove & drain excess oil on a paper towel.

Store extras in an airtight container.
