When I first heard Lekshmi Nair mentioning Velayappams made with wheat in her Cookery Show on Kairali TV, I was surprised. How could Vellayapam be made with anything other than rice? Be it Vellayappam, Palappam or Kallappam, back home in Kerala, it was always made with rice. Well, after I saw her show, I was convinced to go ahead and try those simple Wheat Vellayappams. And I was in for a complete surprise. These Wheat Vellayappams tasted as good as their rice counterparts. We relished it with Chicken Curry.
