About Kinnathappam Recipe

One of my childhood favorite snack. Everytimev I visited Kerala, I used to have it at my grandma's house. Traditionally this is made with pounding rice in stone and it tastes heavenly. I still drool over the taste, its popular snack in Malabar Kerala. Its not possible these days to pound rice in a stone yet sharing the yummy recipe
