Aappam with Coconutmilk


Boiled Rice-1cup
Raw Rice-1cup
Methi Seeds-1teaspoon
Old rice /Pazhaiya saatham ***-one fistful

Wash and soak the rices with methi seeds for 6 hours.
Grind it with the rice to a fine batter,add salt and let it ferment overnight.

Appam batter should be little watery than the regular dosa batter, so when you are making aappams, take the required amount of batter, add little water, and bring it to the required consistency.

Heat a nonstick aappam griddle, pour a laddle full of batter in the center, rotate the griddle carefully , so that the batter spreads evenly,close the lid, and cook on medium heat.

Open the pan, and take the aappams out, once cooked, they will slide down the pan very easily! :) Enjoy with the sweet coconut milk or spicy vegetable kuruma.
Sweet Coconut Milk

Coconut milk powder-3tablespoons
Sugar-1/4cup (adjust to your sweet tooth! ;) )

Mix the coconut milk powder with luke warm water.
Boil the milk in a pan,combine the hot milk,sugar and coconut milk..cook on low heat till the sugar melts.
Switch off the stove and add the elaichi powder.
Enjoy it with hot n spongy appams!

Freshly squeezed coconut milk is the best, but coconut milk powder works well too! Adding milk is optional, you can replace milk with more coconut milk powder.
Always add little salt for appam, as we are going to eat with sweet coconut milk.
Aapam with Vegetable Kurma

Though the authentic combo for aapam is coconut milk, you can't eat all sweet breakfast! Spicy vegetable kurma is the best savory side dish for aapam. You can have it with coconut chutney or any other Chutney.

Usually I make aappam with only raw rice, this time, I saw the recipe here, and tried it. You can find the other version(unfortunately the recipe is in tamil! :) ) of aappam here.

***Old rice (cooked rice soaked in water for at least 8 hours)
