Athishaya Pathiri – Baked Pancakes

Sometimes, things come as it comes, giving you surprises all across the way. Blogging has just been that way for me. I started it at a whim on things, but believe me, now I am enjoying each and every bit of the cooking, clicking, typing and random rambling!!! Not to mention, all of you out there who have been extra supportive… ūüôā ¬† You may have noticed that from the beginning of the year, we have had two cook-along for the Kerala Kitchen – the first one being the Kappa Masala and the second being the Chammanthi Podi, both which were hosted by Nagalakshmi from Edible Garden, who I don’t think needs any introduction – she is such a seasoned blogger!

Kerala Kappa Masala – Tapioca Masala

At least, I am on time. I finally bought tapioca last Tuesday and came home. We normally don’t buy tapioca due to my umma’s diabetes problem. So it has been quite some time since we have had some. As soon as umma saw the grocery, she immediately ordered my B to get fresh beef from the local grocery. Then she gave me a smile and said, “Ethrayum kaalam kappa biriyani thinitilla, onnu undakko?” (“I’ve not had tapioca biriyani till now, can you make it for me?”) Who can resist kappa biriyani? Finally, I just kept around 700 gms aside and used up the remaining to make the kappa biriyani, the recipe of which will come in due course. This weekend, I made the Kerala Kitchen challenge for our chai break. The recipe is adapted from Edible Garden, who is hosting this month’s challenge, however made slight changes to the quantities…
