This recipe suggested by Priya Suresh but I was follow the procedure of Erivum Puliyum’s blog. You can say this rice flour cannoli, fried rice flour tubed and Kuzalappam.

Kuzhalappam is really crunchy and tasty fried snack. It’s a new experience for me to try this kind of savory snack and my parents also love these crunchy bites.
