I think I’ve told you enough about my love for bakery, right? My brother was the one who took the most advantage of this weakness of mine. During our childhood days, whenever we had a fight, he used to make up with some bakery food. It was like give me a pastry or puffs, and and I’m the kindest person ever, who forgives you instantly even without blinking an eye!
Even now, when I’m at home in Kerala, I make sure that I visit a bakery, at least once in two days. Walking from one end of the bakery to the other, all the while drooling at the displayed delicacies, I never fail to get an adrenaline rush! My decision making skills are put to a test every time I visit a bakery, because I can never make up mind about what to buy. Unniyappam is one of the things that I always love to buy.
I always thought it’s too complicated and tedious to make Unniyappam at home. I was wrong! Last time when we were at Jose’s place in Kerala, I was taking pictures and noting down recipes of dishes that mummy made specially for us. You remember the meen curry and parippu vada recipes, right? Seeing my enthusiasm, mummy asked me whether I wanted to make something specially for this blog. So one evening we ended up making Unniyappam and that’s when I realised it’s no rocket science! I like Unniyappams to be crispy, spongy and moist and that’s exactly how it turned out. What surprised me was that it tasted even better the next day!
Btw, if you havent tasted unniyappam yet, please do try it once. Trust me, you will regret not having it earlier!
