This round soft rice cake is a typical Kerala Christian Dish.It is absolutely lipsmacking with the sweetness from the sugar and the taste tickling flavour from the crushed cardamom.

  2. Cooked Rice : 3 tbsp
  3. Grated coconut : 3/4 cup
  4. Sugar : 1/2 cup
  5. Instant Yeast : 1/2 tsp
  6. Crushed Cardamom : 10-15
  7. Raisins : 7-8
  8. Cashew nuts(broken) : 10

Method :
  • Grind rice,cooked rice and grated coconut together into a medium consistency(the batter should not be too lose or too thick.While grinding the water added should be just below the rice level.)
  • After grinding, add sugar ,yeast and allow the whole mix to just one crush for mixing everything together.
  • Transfer the dough into a bowl and add the crushed/powdered cardamom.
  • Keep it for 5-6 hours or overnight in a warm place.
  • Heat a steamer.Apply some ghee or oil in the desired plate and pour the batter into it.
  • Add the raisins and cashews in the half way.
  • Steam it for 25-30 minutes.
