Ingredients to make Aapam

  • Raw rice - 1.5 Cup
  • coconut - 1 cup
  • baking soda - 1 tsp
  • salt - to taste
  • water - to grind

How to make Aapam

  1. Wash the rice and get them soaked for almost 8 hours or more.
  2. Grate the coconut.
  3. In a mortar, grind together the rice and coconut to a fine paste.
  4. The batter should not be watery. Hence grind the mixture by pouring almost 1 cup water little by little until you get them ground.
  5. From this batter, take 2 tbsp of the batter and add into a cup of water and mix well.
  6. Place the bowl in simple mode and stir until a medium thick paste is formed.
  7. Switch off the stove. Let the paste gets cool, and add into the rest of the batter. Give it a nice stir , add 1/2 tsp of baking soda and mix well.
  8. Keep this portion in a warm place and again allow a rest time of 8 hours for the batter to get fermented enough.
  9. Now, again add baking soda and salt to taste, heat up an aapam pan, and add the batter.
  10. Grease up the pan, add the batter, swirl the pan by hand until the batter circles and touches inside all the pan around, and close with a lid until the aapam gets steamed well.

My Tip:

Usually I grease the pan a day before I pour the aapam batter so that the pan acts as a non stick pan.
