Puff pastry recipe: Homemade puff pastry in 15 minutes, can you believe that??  Bakery style Puff pastry is so easy to make at home that you will never buy greasy bakery puffs. The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry"

Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes.

Vattayappam / Steamed Rice Cake / Kerala Style

Vattayappam is Kerala's own fermented SteamedRice Cake. One of the healthiest traditional tea time snack with almost no oil. It is popular in the Christian communities of Kerala, though not much popular in North Kerala/ Malabar.

 "Vatta" means "round" ......vattayappam is basically rice and coconut grinded together and fermented with yeast....it is very soft and pillowy.....a slightly sweet snack......these days, it has found its place in bakeries especially in Kochi and Kottayam...and when I got a request from an anonymous reader asking for vattayappam recipe...I thought of sharing the recipe...as it is very easy to make...and does not take much time to make. I usually make it as an after school snack as it is very healthy and filling for kids.
