About Appam (Without coconut) Recipe

Appams are a delicacy of Kerala. Its a very filling breakfast. I have prepared this without adding coconut which otherwise requires coconut.

Appam (Without coconut)

Ingredients to make Appam (Without coconut)

  • Raw rice 2 cup
  • urad dal 1 tbsp
  • Beaten rice or Poha 1 cup
  • yeast 1 tsp
  • sugar 1 tbsp
  • salt to taste

How to make Appam (Without coconut)

  1. Soak rice and Urad dal for 4-5 hours. Wash and soak poha for 10 minutes before grinding.
  2. Grind rice and poha together to a fine batter. The batter should be a little watery than the regular dosa batter.
  3. Add sugar, yeast and salt. Keep overnight for fermentation.
  4. Take a deep bottomed, bowl shaped kadai. Appam kadais are also available. Now add oil to the kadai just roll it to spread the oil evenly.
  5. Now pour a ladle full and 1/2 ladle of batter and rotate the kadai so that the batter takes the shape of the kadai. The additional 1/2 ladle of batter is added to maintain the puffiness at the center of the appam.
  6. Close the lid. Appam is ready within a minute.
  7. Serve hot with stew, potato bhaji or kurma.
