Vatteppam/Vattayappam~~IC Challenge

Our this month's challenge goes for Kerala special steamed rice cakes called as vatteppam or vattayappam..When Srivalli announced this challenge, we immediately thought this vatteppams goes for lengthy cooking process,but actually its quite an easy dish if u follow the instructions correctly..This steamed cakes tastes marvellous when they were slightly warm and even tastier when gets completely cooled,i couldnt stop having them i can even say that i have completely fallen in love with this spongy steam rice cake..Thanks to Srivalli and Shn of Mishmash for sharing this wonderful Kerala special else i would have never tried this wonderful sweet steam cake ever..

VAttteppam

1cup Raw rice
3/4cup Grated coconut
2tbsp Cooked rice
1/2cup Water
1/2tsp Active dry yeast
1/3cup Water
1/2cup Sugar + 2tsp Sugar (for yeast)
5nos Cardamom (powdered)
Few cashewnuts
Few raisins
2tbsp Ghee

Grind the rice with enough water as coarse paste,remove 2tablespoon of this grounded paste for making rice porridge..Now add the grated coconut to coarse paste and grind everything as fine batter, finally add the cooked rice and again for few minutes, keep the batter aside..

Meanwhile mix the active dry yeast with 1/3cup of warm water and sugar, keep aside until the yeast turns foamy also make the rice porridge by heating enough water in a pan along with grounded rice paste,cook until they turns as thick paste,keep aside until its gets cool completely...

Now add the rice porrdige,yeast mixture to the rice paste,blend together for few seconds, pour immediately the batter to a large bowl and let it sit for overnite..The next day,when the batter is doubled and fermented,add the sugar,stir everything well and keep again aside for an hour..

Heat the ghee, roast the cashew nuts,raisins until they turns brown...grease a round vessel or plate,mix the cardamom powder, roasted nuts and raisins to the fermented batter..pour the batter to the greased vessel sprinkle few nuts and raisins over the batter, pressure cook for 30minutes in medium heat...Insert a skewer to check whether its gets completely cooked...

Take off the cooked cake from the cooker and keep it aside until its gets cool completely, run a knife by the side to lift out the cake..Cut the cake as wedges and enjoy..

Gorgeous rice cake, Priya...what a coincidence that we both made rice cake at the same time, except yours is totally different. Love the coconut, and the cashews!
