ABOUT Grandma's Kalathappam RECIPE

One of my favourite snack/ dessert. I love the way my grandmama used to make it. Its also one of the popular snack from my hometown Kannur, Kerala. I am sure not many across India are aware of this mouth watering snack so let me share the recipe. Though there are plenty of variations made by using rice flour, baking soda etc, I love the way its traditionally made
