Kuzhalappam (cylindrical Rice Snack)
Kuzhalappam or kozhalappam is a pipe shaped fried snack traditionally made in Christian households in Kerala. This does not mean the other communities dont make this but if you ever happen to visit a christian house for a gathering and if they have a granny alive, you will be force fed this :) Now a days this dish is vanishing from households and is made and sold commercially in bakeries to preserve this recipe. Ideally it is made using a pipe like instrument which we have in our traditional ancestral home hence the name. You can fry them as balls or make flat discs and roll them into small logs and fry them as well.
