How to make Red Velvet Khuzhi Appam

  1. Wash and soak both the rice, urad dal and fenugreek seeds together for 2-3 hours. Grind to a smooth batter. Add salt to taste, mix well and let it ferment overnight or 12/15 hrs.
  2. Wash and pressure cook the beetroot. Cool, peel, chop and grind it to a smooth purée.
  3. To make the red velvet Kuzhi appam Mix the beetroot puree( 3/4th cup) with Kuzhi appam batter( 2 1/2 cups) well.
  4. Heat the Kuzhi appam pan. Add little oil in all the moulds. Pour a tablespoon of batter in each mould and let it cook for few mins till the under side becomes crisp
  5. Gently flip to the other side and cook till that side also becomes crisp.
  6. Remove the Kuzhi appam, drain excess oil and serve hot with spicy chutney:)
My Tip: Cook the appam on a medium flame to get a crispy texture on the outside and soft melt in mouth texture on the inside.
