Almost the same ingredients as this week’s Morappam, but a small twist here and the cooking method yields a totally different snack. My love for Gujarati cuisine is yet to be documented on this blog, but I had bookmarked Kanan’s recipe long ago. Early one morning my mom asked me to make something nice for the evening snack, and it was quite a surprise as she’s least fussy or demanding about food. I quickly prepped for the evening snack knowing like me, she prefers steamed food too.
So, if you are a fan of steamed food like us, read the recipe. And do check out more steamed food options below.

- Wash and soak rice and dal for 4 hours. I soaked them in hot water in an airtight vacuum casserole to speed up the soaking. Grind to a smooth thick paste, and ferment add yoghurt ,salt and or 8 hours (I fermented for only 6 hours as it was really humid that day).
