  • Achappam is an integral part of Christmas celebrations among Malayali and Goan Christians.
  • The Sri Lankan version of achapam is called koki.
  • Rossettes are of deep-fried cookie-like pastries of Scandinavian origin. A traditional Swedish recipe for making rosettes calls for a rosette maker—an intricately designed iron rod which is immersed in extremely hot oil for a few seconds, and then into the batter, and back into the oil to produce crisp rose-shaped shell along the curvatures.
