    4. Transfer the rice urad dal batter to another big container / bowl and mix well with cooled rice paste, salt and yeast solution. Stir all the ingredients well.
    5. Adjust the consistency with 1/4 cup (50 ml) water, if required.

    10. Underside should be golden in colour. You can see several honeycomb designs on top of the appam. Remove carefully with a flat spatula.
    11. Serve hot with any gravy dishes of your choice.
