Today we had a few visitors at our home, my sisters family and their kids. We made vattayappam as evening snack for us. They liked it. We used smashed bananas also as an ingredient and that was the main difference from the usual vattayappam recipes. Try this recipe at home and let me know your feed backs.

Vattayappam is a typical Kerala Christian snack item prepared usually during Christmas and Easter days.
