VENNA (BUTTER)KACHAYAM - RICE BUTTER BISCUIT


VENNA (BUTTER)KACHAYAM - RICE BUTTER BISCUIT

Venna kachaayam is an authentic sweet recipe in which butter and rice are the main ingredients. We can say it is the healthy biscuit which our grandparents were prepared and enjoyed.

It is one of the recipes which are almost disappeared in most of the places. Very few only know the recipe of the sweet in my place. It was considered as a richest sweet those days as it requires more butter.

It is like our badusha, and the appearance will also close enough. But the ingredients and method will be different. It is definitely healthier sweet when compared to the badusha.

It will be whiter in color with soft inside and crispy outer with mild sweetness. We can say it as south indian biscuit made of rice.

Actually I have never tasted this sweet before, but have heard the name only, in fact didn’t have any idea of the ingredients for this sweet before.  Later I have asked the elders in my native who are experts in making traditional sweets and savories. Only couple of them have known this recipe.

Later I have tried the recipe and it came out well and there were few mistakes too. So after getting clarified the doubts, I again tried the recipe with proper measurements, and got the exact output, with correct texture, appearance and taste.

While making this kachayam few things we have to keep in mind.
  • The oil should be really hot to avoid the splitting of flour while frying.
  • Also while preparing the dough, don’t prepare all the dough in one time. Prepare the dough in batches. Because the butter will starts to melt in few minutes and will make the dough thin. So prepare the dough in small batches and prepare the kachayam.
  • Coat the kachayam with the sugar powder immediately after drained from the oil to get the even sugar coating. Otherwise the sugar will not coat on the fried kachayam.

AUTHOR: KUZHALIS SAMAIYALARAI
RECIPE TYPE: SWEETS
CUISINE: SOUTH INDIAN
YIELDS: 10 APPROX.

INGREDIENTS:
                        To make the flour
                                    1 ½ cup raw rice                             
                        To prepare the kachayam
                        1 cup prepared rice flour
                                    ½ cup butter
                                    ½ cup powdered sugar
                                    A pinch of salt
                                    2 cardamoms                        
                                                           
PREPARATION:
Soak the rice in water for 30 minutes.
Drain the water and let it dry in shade for around 1 hour in a cotton cloth.
This step is just to remove the excess water and to make the rice dry.
Then grind the rice into smooth powder without adding water.
Then sieve the ground rice flour to get the really smooth rice powder.
Now the rice flour is ready. Keep it aside.
Grind the sugar into smooth powder along with cardamoms and keep it aside.
Add salt to the butter and mix well and set it aside.

METHOD:
In a mixing bowl take the flour and butter and mix well.
Prepare thick dough and make small round shaped kachayams.
In a pan take the oil and let it heat. Deep fry the kachayams in the hot oil and let it fry till the color becomes golden brown and the spluttering stops.
 Then drain the kachayam from the oil and coat them with the powdered sugar.
Store the kachayams in air tight container.

NOTES:
  • Instead of grinding the cardamoms with the sugar, you can mix the cardamom powder too.
  • Sieving the rice flour is important to get the nice smooth rice powder.
  • The oil should be really hot to avoid splitting of the batter while frying.
  • Coat the sugar powder with the kachayams while they are hot, otherwise the sugar coating will not be even.
  • Prepare the dough in batches.
  • Add a pinch of salt only, don’t add more.
