Happy Onam 2015 Instant Baked Vattayappam (Baked Rice Cake)

This Onam may the spirit of King Mahabali spread prosperity and Happiness to all.... I wanted to make some floral rangoli and celebrate the festival with sweets... I thought of this dish where it  should be traditional as well.. Instead of a cake base I made Instant Baked Vattayappam  (Baked Rice Cake) as a base and then decorated it with Coconut cream... Floral design on top of the rice cake...

Add the liquid to the yeast, gradually add the rice flour and whisk it till no lumps remain. Add the mashed banana, raisins and cashewnut. Mix it well. The batter should be thick dropping consistency. Keep it for 10 minutes. Take a baking tin, grease the baking tin. Pour in the batter in the tin. Let it rest for 20 minutes in the baking tin.
