Appam/ Rice pancake


You will need:

  • 2 cup sona masoori rice/ Basmathi rice
  • 2 tbsp urad dal
  • 1 cup cooked rice(can substitute with aval/poha also)
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp sugar(can increase or decrease according to your taste)
  • 1 tsp salt

Step 1:

Soak the rice and urad dal together for 6 to 8 hours or even overnight.

Step 2:

Grind to a fine paste using water/ milk/ coconut milk. When grinding add aval/poha also. Grind it to a fine paste.

Step 3:

Allow it to ferment overnight inside oven or in a warm place.

Step 4:

Add coconut milk to the fermented mixture and mix it well. Add salt and sugar. If it it too think just grind it once again in the mixie/blender.

Mix it well and make aapam using appam thawa. You can make appam using dosa thawa also. But obviously the shape differs .


Secret of making appam perfetly is making appam in a low heat. When you are pouring appam into the appam thawa it should be very less heat. After pouring the appam rise the heat to medium high. It will get ready within a min.

Hi,

I was google searching to see if appam can be made with sona masoori rice and came across your blog. First time hearing about adding urad dal for appam! Also no need for yeast to help in fermentation? Yeast ellathe mavu pulikkumo? Will try this anyways.... Thanks for the recipe.
