Appa is also called pathiri in Malabar cooking. These are essentially thin rice rotis that are dipped in coconut milk just before serving.
Serve these coconut milk dipped Appas with curries like Kadala Curry , Malabari Curry or Yam and Spinach Pulusu .
- Boil 1 cup of water with salt in a deep pan
- Add the rice flour while stirring continuously till the flour has absorbed all the water. Remove from the flame and knead into a soft dough, using warm water if required.
- Divide the dough into 6 equal portions.
- On a wooden board, sprinkle a little water. Place each ball on the wooden board and with wet hands, press it evenly to make a round of 75 mm. (3") diameter circle. Keep aside.
- Heat an earthen tava (khapri) and cook the appas on one side on a low flame. When it leaves the sides, turn it on the other side. As it rises, press it along the sides till it puffs like a ball.
- Repeat with the remaining balls to make 5 more appas. Serve hot with coconut milk.
