Vatteppam or Vattayappam as it is called in some parts of Kerala, is a simple steamed sweet rice cake, which tastes absolutely amazing!
Its the time for Indian Cooking Challenge again and this time we have some from God’s Own Country Vatteppam…. I have missed last two or three ICCs for some reason or the other!
Oh, the last one I missed because the khandvi didnt turn out well and you know why because I used maize flour instead of gram flour ha ha ha anyways I made it again with gram flour and it turn out super mast post it soon! So, I was determined to do it this time and when I saw what the theme is, I was very excited because I have eaten it once and I loved it.
Before starting to make this I exchanged some notes with Valli who had already made it and that made it easier for me. I increased the sugar a little bit and made just 1 cup of the recipe, it was pretty yumm and we at home just eat like dessert in the evening with tea 🙂
When I was reading about Vatteppam, I came across several interesting references for Appam. Appam is similar to pancakes in many ways, and is usually made from fermented rice flour and coconut milk. It is eaten regularly for breakfast in Kerala. It is something which the Christians in Kerala make more often! The plain Appams are usually eaten with vegetable stew or some egg curry. They are also served with kadala curry which is basically the black channa which we used in North India, but this curry has a coconut base to it! Apart from the plain appam, there are loads of different kinds of appams, but the common factor in them is the rice flour!
Speaking of egg curries, have you tried the done in 20 minutes everyday egg curry on the blog?
