Appam is a famous dish from the keralite repertoire of south indian cooking. This recipe is an easy-to-make, instant version of the otherwise tough-to-make dish. Since yeast is used, the batter need not be fermented for long unlike the traditional version. Serve appam with slightly-sweetened coconut milk and vegetable korma for a perfect meal!

2 cups raw rice (chawal)
1/2 cup cooked rice (chawal)
2 cups coconut milk
2 tsp sugar

1/2 tsp dry yeast
coconut oil or any other refined for greasing and cooking

vegetable korma
  1. Wash and soak the rice for 2 to 3 hours. Drain.
  2. Combine the soaked rice, cooked rice and ½ cup of coconut milk and blend in a mixer till smooth.
  3. Add the sugar, remaining 1½ cups of coconut milk and salt and mix well.
  4. Add a little lukewarm water to the yeast and mix well.
  5. Add it to the rice mixture and mix well (the batter should be of dropping consistency). Cover and keep aside for 2 to 3 hours.
  6. Heat an appam kadhai or a deep non-stick tava and grease it lightly with oil.
  7. Pour a ladleful of the batter into it and slowly rotate the kadhai in a circular motion so that a thin layer forms on the side while the middle remains thick.

  9. Repeat for the remaining batter to make to make more appams.
  10. Serve hot with vegetable korma.
