Appam / Aappam with Coocnut Milk

     What is aappam? According to my Hubby’s research(because he is a P.hd and always researches something or other), aappam is idli in dosa shape. The best way to have appam is first two have with coconut milk and next with coconut chutney with more chillies added.

Raw Idli Rice
1 cup
Barboiled Idli Rice
1 cup
Urad Dal
½ cup
Fenugreek Seeds
 1 tbsp
As required
Cooking Soda
A pinch
1. Wash and soak both the rice together for 2-4 hours.
2. Wash and soak urad and fenugreek seeds together for 3-4 hours.
3.  Grind the rice into a fine paste with enough water.
4. Grind the urad dal till the urad batter comes soft and flyffy.
5. Mix both off the batter together with salt and keep it 6-8 hours or overnight for fermentation.
6. After fermentation, the batter would have become fluffy.  
7. Add enough water to make the batter into a running consistency. At this stage add cooking soda and keep it aside for 5- 10 mins.
8. Now the aappam batter is ready to use.
9. Heat the aappam pan and pour few drops of oil. Then pour 2 ladle full of batter into the pan. Now rotate the pan in a circular motion, so that the batter spreads all over the pan.
10. Now pour few drops of oil and close the lid of the pan. Cook for 2-3 mins.
11. Then take it out from the pan and serve it hot with coconut milk or chutney.

1. You should not turn over the aappam.
2. Raw rice helps to makes the appam soft.

I didn’t take stepwise photo. I upload it later.

ஆப்பம் நல்லா இருக்குங்க..உங்க கணவரோட ரிசர்ச் சூப்பர்! எனக்கு தே.பாலுக்கு அப்புறம் காரமா குருமா உடன் சாப்பிட விருப்பம்! :)

ஆப்பத்துக்கு நான் போடும் ப்ரபோர்ஷன் வேற..ஆப்பசோடா போடாமல், எண்ணெயும் ஊற்றாமல் தான் ஆப்பம் செய்வேன். முடிந்தால் அடுத்த முறை ஆப்பத்துக்கு அரைக்கையில் தேங்காய்த்தண்ணி ஊற்றி அரைச்சுப்பாருங்க..சூப்பரா இருக்கும்! :)
