This recipe I watched on TV, and decided to try and see how it would taste. The taste was good and it was really quick mix to make. The Appams were excellent soft, spongy and quick to make no hassle of fermentation. This recipe is a keeper.
1 Cup Parboiled Rice
1 Cup Raw Rice
1/4 Cup Urad Dal
1/4 Poha ( Flattened Rice)
1/2 Cup Grated Coconut
1 Teaspoon Soda bi carb
Salt to taste.
Wash and soak the both the rice and urad dal overnight or 3 -4 hours. Just before grinding wash the poha and keep aside. Grind the rice, dal, coconut and poha to a fine paste. Transfer this batter into a bowl add salt and soda bi carb mix well till the soda dissolves.
Heat a Appam Kadai pour a laddle full of batter, swirl it, cover and cook till done on slow flame.
Open and see if the center is cooked and starts leaving the side. Lift and keep the appam in a plate. Repeat the same process till all the batter is over. These were delicious. I had them plain when hot for breakfast. Rest H and I had for our meal. Do give this recipe a try and post your comments.
