Appam is a type of pancake made with fermented rice batter and coconut . This is a popular South Indian dish .
- Prep: 3 hrs
- Cook: 5 mins
- Yields: 00:00
1Soak the rice for 3-4 hrs . Drain the rice and grind it along with other ingredients into smooth batter . Add instant dry yeast . Keep it in a warm place for fermentation .
2Once it is fermented , add soda powder . If the batter is too thick ,add water . The batter should not be too thick nor watery .
3Heat appam pan . Grease it well with gingelly oil . Make appams by pouring the batter into the center and gently spreading it on to the sides . Cover it with a heavy lid and let it cook for a minute or two .
4Use a spatula to remove the appam from the pan .
I used instant dry yeast in this recipe .So it is directly added . If active dry yeast is used ,it should be proofed separately .
