About Vattayappam Recipe

Fluffy yummy, mildly sweet Steamed Rice Cake has been one my childhood favourite snack. My grandma used to make using kallu chettu (palm wine/toddy) and the taste is so heavenly that I can still feel in my mouth. Here I have used yeast however I will recommend using toddy to make it. Vattayappam is popular snack in Kerala so I am sure anyone who has visited Kerala would have tasted it
