APPAM / vellayappam

I am posting one of Kerala's Traditional breakfast recipe; "appam". It is also known as "Velleappam". It can be served with Chicken roast/egg curry. Vegetarians can serve the appam with vegetable stew . Kids will love the appam with cocnut milk and sugar!. Use "pachari" if possible..and to get soft n fluffy appam use a separate "appachatti" for it..

Ingredients :

Raw rice : 1 1/2Cup
Dry Yeast : 3/4tsp
Sugar : 2tsp
Coconut Milk : 1/2 to 3/4Cup
Rava : 2tsp

Method :

1. Soak rice in water for 4hrs. Dissolve dry yeast and sugar in luke warm water for 30min. Before grinding drain water completely from soaked rice. Now add yeast mixture with that water and grind with soaked rice.Grind it to a fine paste.

2. After 5hrs add rava and 4tsp of water in a pan and make a thick paste in low flame. When it gets cool, add it to the appam batter and mix well with hand. Keep it overnight and Leave it for fermentation.

3. Before making appam add coconut milk and make in the same consistency of dosa batter and add required salt.

4. Heat kadhai (""appachatti), smear little coconut oil on it.Pour one spoon full of dough in the appam pan and rotate the pan in circular manner to get the shape of appam. Put a tight lid on it and within 3min appam is ready to have!!


  1. Excellent looking and soft appam lena...

  2. They look soft and ready to be gobbled up. :)
    BTW, What is pachari? Chutney / pickle by any chance?

  3. This is the first time i tried with rava,but it was really yummy and delicious dear...
