Aapam is very delicious dish made frequently in southern part of Tamilnadu and also in Kerala. This is a very healthy recipe as it does not involves usage of any oil. Aapam is steam cooked dish and hence good for the children too. Appam is generally served with Kadala Curry(Recipe to be published soon) and Coconut Milk in Kerala. In most of the restaurants in TamilNadu, Appam is served with Kurma or Kadala Curry or Coconut milk. Kadala Curry and Coconut milk are perfect accompaniment for this Appam. I personally like Appam with Coconut milk. The sweetness of coconutmilk gives a dainty flavour to the dish. I have seen many people who prefer kadala curry or other spicy accompaniment. Appam with Kadala curry and coconut milk, perfect and rich breakfast dish.

Method:
  1. Soak the rice in water for 1-2 hours. Drain the rice and grind it in mixer to a smooth batter by adding water little by little. Take the batter in a vessel

  2. Clean the mixer with some water and along with this add 4 ladle of ground batter and pour this into a pan and keep stirring it till this mixture becomes thick consistency and then switch off the flame

  3. Add this to the ground batter and add salt. Keep this batter aside for atleast 12 hours for fermentation

  4. The next day add the soda salt and the aapam batter is now ready for use. Heat the Appam pan and pour 1 ladle of batter and rotate the pan to spread the batter evenly and close the pan with the lid. Let the aapam cook in low flame for few minutes. Once the appam is cooked, we can see the appam stop sticking to the pan and comes out easily. Gently remove the appam from pan and place it in a plate. Repeat the same for the rest of the batter.

  5. Serve the delicious Aapam with cocunut milk, Kadala curry and chutney

  4. Hi Prasanna, We need to make a koozh. That is after grinding the batter, take 4 ladle of batter separately in a pan. Take the remaining batter in a vessel. Clean the mixer with 1 cup of water and add this to the separately taken 4 ladle of batter and mix well and keep in flame and stir continuously till the batter becomes thicker and lumps are not formed. Remove from flame and add this to the remaining batter and keep it for fermentation.

    1. Hi Revathi, Thanks for your message.
      you can find the kadala curry recipe in the below link. http://www.subbuskitchen.com/2014/09/kadala-curry-recipe-kerala-style-kadala.html

      Coconut milk preparation. Grate 1 full coconut and add it to the mixer. Add 1.5 -2 cups of water and nicely grind it to a paste. Squeeze out the coconut paste to take the milk out of it. Also you can strain the milk to get rid of coconut gratings if any present. Finally add nearly 1/4 cup of sugar to the coconut milk and mix well. Our coconut milk is now ready to serve with aapam.
