If you love South Indian food, then Appam is a must try recipe in the kitchen to relish its authentic flavours. Watch and learn this easy to make recipe by Preetha and serve it with potato curry and chutney.


    Raw Rice (short grained/ kolam/boiled rice variety) – 1 cup
    Cooked Rice (short grained )- 1/3 cup
    Freshly grated coconut- 1/3 cup
    Dry Yeast- 1 teaspoon
    Sugar- 2 teaspoons + 1 tablespoon
    Salt to taste
    Water as required


Soak rice in 1 cup water for minimum 4 to 5 hours.
Post 5 hours drain off water. Do not discard the soaking water. We will use it while grinding.
In a mixer, blend soaked rice, cooked rice, coconut and soaking water to a smooth batter.
In a large container, combine 2 teaspoon sugar, dry yeast, and 1/3 cup lukewarm water. Keep aside for 10 minutes.
Add ground batter to the mixture and mix well. Cover and keep in a warm place overnight or for 7 to 8 hours until it rises well.
Just before making appam, add salt and sugar as required.
Coat appam kadhai with oil and heat it.
On a medium flame, pour batter in the kadhai and swirl till it coats uniformly to all sides of the pan.
Cover and cook for a minute or two depending on how soft or crisp you want the edges to be.
Follow the same process for rest of the batter.
Remove onto a plate and serve hot with sweetened coconut milk or stew.
