30 years ago I learnt this recipe from my husband’s grand mother. I learnt this recipe from her. My husband’s grand ma used to make this healthy easy spicy yummy recipe after her Ekadasi fasting. On dwadasi day she will have this kaliyappam with hot rice.

Kaliyappam is nothing it is amla or nellikka mixed with coconut and chillies. With in 10 minutes we can make this. It can be eaten at anytime. Let us see how to make this nutritious dish.

Preparation time approx. 10 minutes.
