Aappam is a traditional recipe of Gods own land, Kerala and Tamilnadu being the neighbouring state, it quite common to see people making aapam in home regularly and also here we get it in many hotels but the thing is getting aapam with good quality of coconut milk in very rare, If we get it then we have to pay high price.
Aappam being hit recipe in my home i make it often at least once in two weeks and my cousins use to ask me for batter to get packed to their home, as the un fermented batter can be kept in fridge for at least 10 days.
It is a very light breakfast that too substituting Eno instead of Soda salt will make it more healthiest recipe.
Here goes the recipe....
Raw Rice - 2 cup
Boiled Rice - 2 cup (Puzhungarisi in tamil)
Fenugreek - 1 tsp
Urud Dal - 1/2 cup
Soda Salt or Eno (Fruit salt)
Salt to taste.
Soak it for minimum 4 hours
And grind the batter as of for Dosa.
Add Salt and mix it with hand and allow to ferment for 15 hours.
While making Aappam.
Take out the required amount of batter, dissolve it with water.
It should be thinner than Dosai batter consistency.
Add 1/4 tsp Soda Salt or Eno for 1 litre batter.
Mix well and use the batter after 10 mins.
Pour the batter in aappam pan and rotate it slowly so that the batter gets spreads to the pan completely.
Center portion of pan should have some batter left, which will come soft and fluffy and the outer portion
will be crispy.
Close the pan and cook untill done.
Serve it with coconut milk and sugar or with spicy curry...
