Smile. There's wine. This is Mum's recipe of sweet wine that is widely appreciated among family and friends. She was quite known for her Christmas cake and Wine. Now I am doing my bit to recreate the same in her traditional ceramic jar(bharani) and sharing it with you. It's fun to try out.
My first attempt at these intricate, humble Kerala Christmas delicacies. The first batch of this crisp crunchy snack does make for a pretty picture. This seemingly simple snack requires a certain amount of dexterity in releasing the batter from the mould. But it isn't difficult to make. They're made with an iron mould dipped into a crepe like batter made of rice, egg, milk, sugar, salt and then deep fried. The mould is to be treated before use. I applied some coconut oil and left it on my terrace. Inspite of following Mum's instructions, I had a few initial fiascos, like the batter getting stuck on the mould and some browning too much. But after adjusting the heat and balancing the mould, it was a breeze. I enjoyed a hot one with chocolate sauce. Next time i shall crush some over icecream.
Piping hot steamed rice cakes with coconut and gorgeous egg roast. What could possibly be more spoiling than that?! Eggs in a delicious onion and tomato based gravy paired with steamed rice flour is the dish of the day. It is one of the most popular breakfast combos in Kerala. Some other combinations for the steamed rice is black channa curry or pappad, ghee, sugar or boiled green gram with coconut and sugar. Of course, you can always make your own combinations as you go and make an entree of this steamed rice flour with a side dish of your choice. Make this treat at home over the weekend and help your kiddies experience the aroma and taste of a Kerala home while you revoke some memories of old times that bring a smile to your face. Happy cooking and eating!!! :)
