Yet another beautiful snack from Malabar. As the name implies, it is made with an 'achu' or mould which gives it the pretty floral pattern. The mould used to be traditionally made by the local blacksmiths. Now adays it is available in shops of Kerala. Women of wisdom say it should be made of wrought iron or brass and must be a bit heavy. The lighter ones tend to make the Achappam stick to them while frying. So... Are they as delicious as they look? Mmm.. they are chipsy crispy yummy. A real treat for sweet snack lovers..
Here is the recipe...
Things you need:
Raw rice flour(should be very fine) - 4 cups
All purpose flour(maida) - 3 tbsp
Thick coconut milk - 1 cup
Sugar - as needed
