I wish all of you and your family a Happy Easter. Achappam is one of most traditional sweet delicacies from Kerala. It’s made from rice flour,coconut milk, eggs and sugar.My all time favorite and I am a die hard fan of it.  A specially designed iron mold (called ‘achu’ in Malayalam) is used  to make this sweet dish and hence the name achappam. Achappam/ Kerala Style Rosette Cookies is one of the famous sweets made during Easter time and it’s very popular among the Christians in Kerala.

It may take some time before you master this..
