Naadan vettucake / fried cakes speaks about the history of baking of Kerala which once existed in place of baked cakes that is easily available today. Now it is not that commonly prepared but certainly it’s a nostalgia for me. Watching the process of making these cakes in my Grandma’s house was a great happiness at that age..
