About Kerala Kuzhalappam - Crispy and Crunchy Snack

Though I have visited many parts of Kerala, I had the opportunity to taste this authentic snack of Kerala only last year when I visited Thrissur, a crispy and crunchy snack with mild spicy flavour and fine aroma of coconut.
My friend made this new recipe for my sake when I was there to present me a new recipe for my blog. I got the opportunity to make it only this week.

  • Boil 4 cups of water with required salt and 2 table spoons of coconut oil. Switch off.
  • Slowly pour the boiled water to the rice flour mix and stir it to soft dough as we make for idiyappam or kozhukattai.
  • When the dough becomes soft and thick enough stop pouring the water. Let it be in the consistency of Roti dough. Check out for salt and if needed add more..
  • Knead the dough to soft with hand and cover it with a damp cloth and set aside for 30 minutes.
  • Now take lemon size balls. Grease your palm with oil and place the ball on a plastic sheet and press gently pattering it to circles like thin rotis.
  • Roll it slowly to cylindrical shape. Press the corners to seal. Make the rest of the rotis too like this.
  • Fry them in oil till become golden brown. Once they become cold store in air tight boxes.
