Fried Tea Cake is also known as Vettu Cake which is very famous and popular snack in Kerala. This is Kerala style evening snack that is made by Plain Flour. This is available in each and every small shop, Bakeries and cool bars. This is very tasty and sweet snack and now everyone is making at home very easily. We can make it at any shapes which you like here I made it in triangle shape. This snack is my favourite snack and everyone in my family like this very much. I have made it in my house so many times because of its taste. When I was child we were buying it from outside and we didn't know about its method of preparation. I learned it a few years ago and I used to make it when I feel to eat this snack. Coconut Oil is using to fry it but oil will not be there on it after frying that is the main specialty of this snack. Its main flavour and smell are Cardamom Powder and it is an excellent combination with hot Tea. It also has the mixed taste of Milk and Egg. We can store it for long days after making it. This is completely natural and homemade snack without any preservatives.
