Appam is one of the traditional recipe in Kerala. Appam is served with coconut milk or with vegetable stew which is one of my favourite recipe. I have learned this recipe from my friend.
Ingredients: ( For 2 person)
1 cup Raw rice
1 cup Boiled rice
1 tsp Fenugreek seeds
1 tsp Urad dhal
3 tbl spoon of coconut.
Pinch of baking soda
Salt to taste
Soak the rice , Fenugreek seeds & urad dhal for 6-7 hrs or whole night. Drain the soaked rice and grind along with coconut to a thick paste. Add baking soda and salt to the batter and mix well. Keep the batter for 8 hrs for fermentation.
Heat a non-stick pan which is shallow. In a spoon take the batter and pour the batter in the middle of the pan. Gently swirl the pan around so the thin layer of the batter cover the sides and thick part collects at the bottom. Cover with lid and cook for 1 min till the edges become golden brown and it is required only to cook on the one side.
Note: While making appam if u want it more soft u can add little baking soda or egg whites.
It will make ur appam more soft.
