Appam - NO Coconut

    I  really wanted to have the heading as " Coconut Less "; i know it is a bit of  something you might be wondering on; well nothing much to think on,  as we mention in some recipes as ' Egg Less ' i wanted to do the same. Then even i really started getting confused , so i edited the name to ' NO Coconut ".  Appam  a Kerala breakfast dish  is again a favourite at home, there are many versions of Appams; Kallappam ( Kallu means Toddy ) , Palappam ( Palu means Milk ) and many more. Appam batter usually contains Grated coconut or Coconut milk, but this recipe  is one even without Coconut water, nor grated coconut.

APPAM - NO Coconut
2 cups Pachari / Raw rice( i used Sona Masuri )
2 tbsp Urad Dal
2 tbsp Sabudhana / Chauvuri / Jhavarasi
4 tbsp Cooked Rice
3 tbsp Sugar ( do adjust )
Salt to taste

2 tsp Yeast
1 tsp Sugar
1/4 cup Warm Water

  • Soak Rice, Urad dal, Sabudhana seperately for atleast 6- 7 hrs.
  • Grind together rice, urad dal, sabudhana, cooked rice to a smooth paste adding water.
  • Mix warm water ,yeast and sugar and let it rise.
  • Add sugar, yeast mixture and salt to taste to the batter.
  • Let the batter sit and ferment.
  • When fermented heat pan and make Appams.
  • Pour a ladle of batter , do not spread it, close it with a lid and cook, flip and cook the other side too.
  • Serve hot with Omelete Curry.

Other Serving Suggestion : Chicken Gravy , Mutton Kurma , Nadan Mutton Curry

Notes: I like my batter to be sweet so i add more sugar, it all depends upon your own taste buds.
