Hey guys! Appam is a South Indian recipe traditionally made with rice. You can make it for breakfast or dinner. It is tasty and uses minimum oil. I have made this using mixed pulses. Appam is made using the appam mould and it is very simple to use it. You can make these for tiffin also. Serve it with coconut chutney. Lets get cooking…
Black Urad Dal (Split) – 1 cup
Green Moong Dal (Split) – 1/2 cup
Urad Dal White (Split) – 1/4 cup
Rice – 2 tbsp
Rava – 2 tbsp
Ginger Green Chilly Paste – 2 tbsp
Black Pepper Powder – 1 tsp
Water – 1/4 cup
Curd – 1/4 cup
Onion (finely chopped) – 1 small
Oil for greasing
Salt as per taste
1) Soak the black urad dal, green moong dal, urad dal and rice for atleast 2 hours and if possible overnight. Grind the soaked dals using just 1/4 cup water. Grind into smooth batter. The batter should be thick.
2) To this add the curd, onion, ginger green chilly paste, rava, black pepper powder and salt. Let the batter rest for 15 minutes. Grease the appam tray with oil.
3) Take a spoonful of the batter and pour in the appam mould. Tap the tray gently. Let the appam cook on low to medium flame. Do not cook on high flame otherwise the bottom will burn and the appam will remain raw from the middle. Check after 5 minutes once it done from the bottom it will de-mould easily. Turn it over and let it become little crusty from the top.
4) Serve immediately with coconut chutney.
