Achappam (kerala Style Rosette Cookies)
Achappam is a traditional South Indian snack. It is very popular among the Christian families and is often made during the Christmas season. Achappam looks very similar to the Scandinavian rosette cookies. Achappam is made using an iron mould which is available in different designs, but looks very much similar to a flower drawn by a kid. When I was a kid, I used to wear each ring of achappam like a finger ring in my hands and this delicate but crunchy Munchy recipe reminds me of my childhood days. The name achappam came from two words ‘achu’ meaning iron mould and ‘appam’ meaning bread.
