  • 2 cups - raw Rice
  • 4 tbsp - Mango puree
  • 1/2 cup - cooked Rice
  • 1/2 cup - grated Coconut
  • 1/2 tsp - Cardamom powder
  • 3/4 cup - Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp - bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp - salt
  • 2 tsp - Ghee
  • 10 to 15 - Almonds
  • How to Make Mango Appam:

    1. Prepare the batter:
    2. Soak the rice in water for 4 to 5 hours. Drain the water, grind it along with coconut, cooked rice and mango puree until you get a smooth batter. Add the sugar and salt, grind again. Pour the batter in a vessel, cover it. Allow it to ferment 1 whole night.
    3. Make the appam:
    4. The next day, just before making your appam, add the soda by mixing it in 1 tbsp of water. Mix it well.
    5. Grease a stainless steel bowl with little ghee.
    6. Mix the batter with some water if it's too thick. Pour it in the bowl, sprinkle with cardamom powder.
    7. Steam it in a steamer or pressure cooker for 30 minutes. To check if it's cooked, insert a skewer and if it comes out clean, then the appams are cooked. Garnish with crushed nuts.
    8. Serve warm or cold, either way it's good.
