Sweet Kalathappam/Kalthappam Recipe (Jaggery sweetened Rice cake)
A North Malabar Delicacy. Jaggery sweetened rice cake topped with fried onion & coconut bites!
Sweet Kalathappam – A traditional rice cake, all the way from North Malabar. I have already shared Unsweetened version of Kalathappam. This dish always make me feel so homely. They are perfect with your evening cup of Coffee/Tea. And if you are a sweet person for breakfast like me, they can make a perfect breakfast too.
You can prepare this exotic rice cake with very minimal ingredients and very easily. Rice and jaggery is the main ingredient of this recipe. Did you notice most of the Kerala special snacks and desserts are sweetened with jaggery?? That caramely flavor enhance the taste of our sweet dishes. Addition of shallots/pearl onion and chopped coconuts are the highlight of this cake. They give exotic flavor to our kalathappam. I love when we get coconut bites in between soft Kalathappam. Don’t avoid coconut and onion while you make this sweet kalathappam.
This is a no fail recipe, you can always get perfect kalathappam with those beautiful lines if you follow measurement and instruction correctly. We always used to prepare them in Pressure cooker without pressure button.
Hope you gonna try this recipe and lemme know the feedback. So lets see the recipe.
