Kalathappam/ Rice cake ( Kannur special ) cooked in oven



Kalathappam is a kannur special tea time snack ,we usually make this is in a pressure cooker but this was my first attempt in oven and the result was unbelievable, it came out so well without any burns which used to be my problem when I make this in cooker.

Ingredients

Rice - 1 1/4 cup
Cooked rice - 1/4 cup
Jaggery -5- 6 cubes( according to your sweetness)
Grated coconut - 1/4 cup
Shallots - 10 nos
Coconut cuts- 2 tbs
Ghee/coconut oil
Baking soda - 1/4 tsp(optional)
Cardamom powder - a pinch
Cumin powder - a pinch

Preparation

Soak rice for 5-6 hrs in water.Grind rice with cooked rice and grated coconut by adding enough water and prepare a loose batter.Add cumin powder and cardamom powder. Allow the batter to stand for 5-6 hrs or if you want to use batter immediately add baking soda.Melt the jaggery by adding little water and add this to the batter.
In a thick saucepan add some ghee/coconut oil and saute the chopped shallots till light brown in colour.In a small pan add some oil and brown the coconut cuts.Add this to the sauted shallots.Pour the batter to the saucepan and gently warm the mixture by stirring continiously .Pour the batter into a greased tin and bake in a preheated oven at 170 degree centigrade for 25- 30 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted comes out clean.Allow it cool down for another half and hour before you cut it.

Looks great, never tried this though.. Indian food right? I love curryyyy so much but this one I've yet to try. I wanna share this to my friends in Foodista, I'm sure a lot would love this! Just add the foodista widget at the end of this post, and that should do it! The widget will direct readers to this post when they go looking for Indian cuisine recipes ;-) Keep on posting!
