Who says noodles is not Indian? Or, it could have been inspired by some Chinese traveler who had traveled to India long ago. If you are wondering, what is it that I am talking about, then let me clear the air and tell you about today’s recipe. It is called Noolappam (“Nool” means “thread” in Malayalam and “Appam” means “rice-cake”). From the name you would have figured out that it is a south Indian recipe, a Kerala recipe to be precise. You would also have understood the reason why I started today’s post with my weird thoughts about Noodles.
In fact, my daughter calls it Noodles and she likes it very much. Since it tastes good even when eaten alone without a side-dish, kids will like it a lot. And for people who don’t prefer a curry along with it, there is another tasty way of having Noolappam. You can mix it with milk and a little Sugar and the taste is just awesome. Again, kids like it this way too.
Noolappam is made of rice and grated coconut that is primarily used for garnishing. It is steam baked. It makes for a tasty breakfast and is healthy as well, with no oil. Serve it alongside potato stew and the combination is just next to nothing.
