Appam/ palappam is a popular kerala breakfast/ dinner served along with veg or non veg curries. It needs prep work like dosa batter and keep for fermentation for 8 hours. In this recipe I have used yeast. There are other ways to prepare the batter without using yeast too.  Will come up with those recipes soon.

Preparation time : 4 hours soaking + 8 hours fermentation

Cooking time : 30 minutes

Serves : 6 to 8

Ingredients : 

White rice/ dosa rice – 2 cups

Grated coconut – 1 cup ( or thick coconut milk 1 cup )

Cooked rice – a handful

Sugar -1 teaspoon

Salt to taste

Yeast – 1/2 teaspoon

Method :

  1. Wash and soak the rice for 4 hours.
  2. In a blender, add drained rice, grated coconut, cooked rice, little water and blend to a smooth batter.
  3. Pour it in a large bowl or air tight box, add salt, sugar, yeast and mix well. Add water according to the consistency. The batter should be little thinner than dosa batter.
  4. Close the lid and keep for fermentation for 8 to 10 hours in a warm place ( Fermentation time depends on the room temperature).
  5. Open the lid, mix the batter gently . Heat the appam pan and pour a ladle of batter. Lift and swirl the appam pan to get the shape. Simmer and cook for 2 minutes.

Appam is ready to serve with Veg curry & Non veg curry .
