Achappam Mould for Click

My Entry for Click
From the time The famous duo announced their theme for this months click
I have been thinking about what to send for them.

Few times I passed their Image Gallery and came back depressed seeing all the beautiful pictures from the other participants. If you ladies go and have a look there you will know what I mean.
But then I do think main thing is to join up the event.
And still there is more than 2 weeks to go so you can imagine how many more entries they are going to get.This is the mould to make achappam a traditional Kerela snack made with rice flour,coconut mil eggs etc.If you want to see how the achappam looks just visit Aparna's My Diverse Kitchen.

My mom used to make them for special occasions.
I have never made them, this mould I got gifted from one of our friends who went for their annual visit to Kerela.
I still have to use them......So in the meanwhile I thought I will make use of it atleast like this by taking a picture and sending for this months

Asha thankyou. I will have to use them once. My mom had this at home and always the neighbours used to come and borrow from us as they said her mould worked better than theirs.
My sis is comming only by end of April, now the break is for Shyamas Spring break from school.

Bee yeah mine too as i said to Asha her was borrowed by most of the neibhouring chechies and aunties.

Happy cook said...

Thankyou all for the lovely comments.
I have not made the achappoms as i always think it will turn out to be a disaster when i make them.
I will try them once and if it turns out ok. I will sure post them.
Well if it is a disaster, i think i will still post them with the tittle
Achappom DISASTER :-)

Meera said...

Really great entry. Achappam mould looks great. I recently came to know its name Achappam, I think when Sandhya posted the recipe. We used to eat those achappams at a friend's place every Christmas. we simply called it wheels.:-)

Kribha said...

Can you believe it HC... I have never tasted this until 6 years back. My hubby only introduced me to this and I absolutely loved it. This is the first time I'm seeing the mold. Great pictures.
