About Appam Recipe

This is a very popular breakfast recipe of kerala, served with stew


Ingredients to make Appam

  • 2 cups raw rice/sona masoori/ dosa rice
  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 2 cups freshly grated coconut
  • 2 tsp dry active yeast
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 2 tsp salt

How to make Appam

  1. Soak rice for 3-4 hours.
  2. Now drain all the water from the rice and grind it to a smooth paste along with cooked rice and grated coconut. Use 2-3 cups of water while grinding.
  3. Take 1/4 cup of warm water. Add sugar and yeast, mix it well, let it stand for 10-15 minutes till it becomes bubbly and frothy.
  4. Now mix it with the rice batter and let it stand at least 4-5 hours depending on the temperature.
  5. After 4-5 hours the batter should rise and increase in volume. So always take a bigger pot .
  6. Now for making appam, heat appam chatty or non stick appam pan with handles. Spread a ladel full of the batter and swirl around, cover it with a lid and check in between whether its crisp and golden brown around the edges. Repeat this with the remaining batter, serve hot with vegetable stew or any non veg gravy.

My Tip:

You can also use coconut milk in place of grated coconut, then reduce the ammout of water while griding. The batter should be thin and flowy to get that light and crisp texture.
