Appam

Print Friendly and PDF

Appam:

Appam is a popular breakfast recipe of South India. It is  tasty rice flour pancakes. 
Though easy to make, they take a little practice to perfect Appam. A well fermented batter will form small holes all over the appam while cooking. This makes the middle of the appams very soft, light & spongy, with crispy golden edges. Appams are healthy as well as tasty breakfast. They are simply great for mopping up delicious Veg & Non Veg Curries…!

    It looks so delicious. Could you do this on a non stick frying pan so does it need an Appam pan?

    One more question - adding cooked rice to the mixture is new to me - Wouldn't the cooked rice go off if left to ferment with the other ingredients for 8 hours? Sorry to ask but I have never made this dish but would love to do so!

    Thanks

  9. Hy Mina,

    Thanx for your precious time n lovely comment...!

    u r right...Appam comes in perfect shape, if we use non stick appam pan.
    In my recipe, I have not used cooked rice to the mixture. without adding cooked
    rice itself, you can have soft idiappams.
    In case u r using cooked rice, smash it separately and add to the mixture, after fermentation.
    stir it well and spread it in appam pan.
    Giv a try and enjoy delicious appam and let me know...how u liked...:)
