Kallappam or Vattayappam ( Steamed rice cake made with toddy )

Step 1


  • Raw rice – 2 Cup (soak for about 6 hours)
  • Water – as needed for grinding the rice.
  • Fresh grated coconut- 3 to 4 cup
  • Cardamom –  1 number
  • Toddy  – 1/2 cup
  • Sugar – 2 tbsp


Grind the rice into fine thick batter by adding water. Take 3 tbsp batter  separately and mix with 1 cup of water and boil over low flame,  while stirring continuously. Make it to a thick paste and make sure that there are no lumps. Now grind the coconut and cardamom to a fine paste by adding toddy (can add toddy while grinding rice too). Mix  well the ground rice, coconut, the cooked rice batter prepared earlier(4 tbsp) and sugar. Keep it for fermenting for about 4 – 6 hours.


If you don’t have toddy, you can use the mixture of half cup coconut water, 1 tablespoon sugar and half  teaspoon yeast – fermented for 2 days

Step 2


  • Salt – as needed.
  • Mixed nuts, tutti fruitti – 1.5 cup


Add half teaspoon of salt to the fermented batter and mix gently without bursting the bubbles. Transfer the mix to a greased tray ensuring enough space on the tray for the mix to expand. Add the dry fruits  and steam it. Insert a toothpick to check –  if it comes out clean, the appam is done. Remove from the tray after cooling down.
