  • 500 gms - raw rice
  • 1/2tsp to 3/4tsp - baking soda
  • salt
  • oil to smear the aapam kadai

How to Make Aapam

  • Wash and soak rice for 3 to 4 hours, put it in colander for half an hour to drain.
  • Spread the rice on a clean cloth and let it dry in a cool spot for 15 minutes.
  • Grind the rice in batches and sieve the flour till you get a very fine powder.
  • Boil one liter of water in a kadai. Add 6 to 7 tbsp of prepared rice powder while stirring continuously ( to avoid lumps) )to form a thin batter and let it cool.
  • Now add the remaining rice powder to the above batter. Add salt and leave it overnight to ferment.
  • Next day, add the required amount of water to prepare a thin batter (A little thinner than dosa batter)
  • Add baking soda, mix well and pour a big ladleful of batter on a thick bottomed greased khadai and rotate the khadai so that the batter will spread like dosa. The result will resemble the appam of Kerala.
  • Serve with a mixture of fresh grated coconut with some sugar and milk or coconut chutney.
