Palappam by Jen


Ingredients
Raw Rice – 1 cup
Grated Coconut – 1 ½ cup
Cooked rice – 3 tablespoons
Yeast – ¼ tsp
Warm water – 1 tablespoon
Sugar – 3 teaspoons
Salt – ¼ tsp

Method
Soak the rice for 5-6 hours. Then grind it fine along with the cooked rice and sufficient water. Separately grind the grated coconut to a fine paste. Add to the rice paste with 2 ½ teaspoons of sugar. Mix well.
Mix yeast, warm water and sugar and keep for about 10-15 minutes. After the yeast gets dissolved in the water, mix with the rice-coconut mixture and keep overnight.
In the morning mix the batter with ¼ tsp salt. Heat and oil an appam chatti (I use a kadai), pour 1 full serving spoon of batter and swirl it around. Then cover and keep for 20-30 seconds. Remove when done and repeat the process for the rest of the batter.

Serve appams hot with stew or meat curry or egg roast.

Technorati icon

Date'n'Walnut Cake

Ingredients
Dates 22
Milk 3/4 cup
Sugar 3/4 cup
All purpose flour (Maida) 1 cup
Oil 1/2 cup (I use sunflower - but I guess you can use any good oil that doesnt have a strong flavour)
Baking soda 1 tsp
Walnuts 1 handful


Method
Soak the dates in warm milk overnight. Remove the seeds. Keep a few dates separate. Add sugar and grind most of the dates to a smooth paste along with the milk in which it is soaked. Then take the 3-4 dates you've kept aside and smash it and add to the paste (this gives a delightful texture within the cake). Add oil to this paste and and mix.
Sieve together flour and baking soda at least thrice. Add the flour 1-2 table spoons at a time to the above mixture and mix well. Fold in the walnuts just before you transfer to the baking dish.
Preheat the oven at 350F (175 C). Bake the cake in a greased oven proof dish for 35-40min (or till a knife inserted in the cake comes out clean).
