Kalathappam refers to Kerala's rice pan cake with Jaggery. It is a delicacy made from the Ari Podi (rice flour), Jaggery, fried onions or shallots and Coconut flakes which are either baked or steamed
Kalathappam is also prepared in other parts of Kerala, but it is more popular in Kannur.
My family friend in Allepey, Kerala cooked this for me so I can also see other kinds of Appam or rice cakes in their State. It was steamed
