Ingredients to make Kerala Thali: Appam with Stew and Urlai Roast

  • 1/2 cup thick coconut milk ( I used Maggi coconut milk powder)
  • 1 tbsp suji
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Avial 1 cup mixed vegetables ( I used french beans, carrots, peas, cabbage)
  • 2 spring onions
  • 1 tsp crushed ginger
  • 2 cups thick coconut milk
  • 2-3 green chillies
  • curry leaves
  • 1/2 kg baby potatoes boiled and peeled
  • 2/3 cup grated coconut ( I used dry coconut but the best results come out with fresh coconut)

How to make Kerala Thali: Appam with Stew and Urlai Roast

  1. Appam : Soak the rice for at least 6 hours. Grind it to a fine paste. Add coconut milk.
  2. Dry roast suji, add 4 tbsp water and mix it. You will get a thick paste. Make sure after putting in the water, you turn off the flame else the paste will become thick
  3. Add suji, salt and sugar and keep it in warm place. The batter is ready once it ferments. It takes about 6 hours in Summers and much more in Winters.
  4. Once the batter is ready, you need a appachatty (a kadhai to make appams). Pour some oil in the chatty and rotate it in circles. You will get a thin crispy texture on the sides and a thick fermented batter in the centre.
  5. Close the lid and steam it for 2 mins
  6. Avial:Parboil all the vegetables and keep aside. Heat oil in a pan, add curry leaves, ginger, green chillies and sliced spring onions. After about a minute, add the vegetables and coconut milk. Bring it to a boil. Season it with salt.
  7. Urlai Roast:Heat oil in a pan. Add ginger garlic paste, curry leaves and green chillies. Add onions after a minute. Once the onions turn golden brown, add tomatoes and coconut. Let it cook for some time. Add salt and sambhar powder.
  8. Keep stirring till you see the oil on the sides. Finally add the potatoes and cook for about 3 minutes on a low flame. You could season this with mint also. It tastes yummm.
