Today’s recipe is a special dish that I got to know about in Kerala. My husband tells me that when they were kids, they used to like it very much and that my mother-in-law used to make them very often. In fact after I made this, I found that my daughter also liked it very much.
Kinnathappam looks very much like a steamed cake. But I couldn’t fool my daughter with that pitch and she had at least 5 different reasons why she felt it was not a cake.
Don’t be fooled by the name “appam”. In fact when I was first told the name, I thought it would be similar to the normal appam. But then I got to know that anything that is steam baked is known as “Appam” in Kerala and that is how this dish get’s the name Kinnathappam .
This is a nice breakfast recipe and since it is not too heavy, your stomach won’t feel too full. At the same time it is healthy for the health-conscious because the only oil that we use it to grease the bowl.
My mother-in-law prefers putting cardamom in it and that gives it a nice flavor. I liked it very much, but if you are somebody who doesn’t like the flavor of cardamom, you would to avoid it. Dry fruits is also a choice, if you want to add it.
So let’s jump onto the recipe now, and do give us your feedback.
