    Am planning to make aapams next week for my DH. He loves them and always keeps asking me to learn how to make them. I would like to surprise him with aapams for his birthday.

    Can we make aapams with the regular rice flour? Do share your aapam-experiments and also some useful tips to bear in mind.

    Many thanks friends...

    Some people add cooked rice instead of idly rice. But traditional method of preparation of Aappam is described here. This dish is almost used in Tamilnadu in morning Tiffin. Aappam is usually served with Coconut Milk (Sweet), or with Coconut Chutney. Around Coimbatore areas, Aapam is served with Kondakadalai kurma, in Tirunelveli or Ramanathapuram areas, it is served with Coconut chutney, in Tanjore areas, Aapam is served with Coconut Milk (Sweet).

    [​IMG]

    Raw rice – 1 cup
    Idly rice – 1 cup
    Fenugreek seeds – 1 tspn
    Aappa soda – a pinch (to make Appam Soft)
    Coconut grated – ¼ cup
    Salt – as required

    Recipe:

    Batter Preparation:
    Soak Raw rice, Idly rice and Fenugreek seeds for 5 to 6 hours.
    Grind the Grated coconut first. Then add all the soaked ingredients and grind it nicely to a fine paste. The batter should not neither be liquid nor sticky. Prepare a consistent batter by adding water now and then while grinding. Finally add the Salt and leave the batter to ferment. After fermentation still the batter well, which makes good taste and aroma.

    Aappam Preparation:

    Heat a pan (aappa chatti) in a constant flame. Stir the batter well and pour one ladle of batter into the pan. Hold the two ends of pan and swing it in a circular motion to spread the batter around the pan. Leave 1 to 2 tspns of oil over the round edges of aappam and close with a lid for a minute time. Take out the aappam once it becomes golden brown over the round edges and soft at the center.

    Serve hot with your favourite chutneys / Dal / Kurma / Coconut milk.

    hi,

    Palapam :

    Mix 1/2 cup of rice flour with 1 to 1 1/2 cup of water to make a liquid paste. Transfer it to a pan and stir it well in low flame. When this turns to a thick paste remove from fire and cool it.

    After cooling down completely, slowly mix the rice flour (2 cups) with the above prepared paste.
    Knead it without crumbs and add the thick coconut milk (1/2 cup) and mix well.
    Then add the semi thick coconut milk (1 cup) and mix well to form a semi thick batter.
    Keep the thin milk (1 cup) in refrigerator.
    Add yeast (1/2 tsp), required amount of salt and sugar (2 tbsp) into the batter.
    Mix well and keep it in a warm place till the batter rises.
    Once the batter rises, check whether it's too thick. If so, add the refrigerated thin coconut milk to make it into a semi thick batter.

    For preparing appam, pour a spoon (thavi) full of batter into appachatti and spread it by rotating the appachatti. Cover it and cook it for 1 to 2 minutes.

    Regards,
    Ansu

    I would like to know whether we can use the normal tawa or aapam chatti only for this. Will normal kadai type will do for making aappams. Please help.
