  • 3 cups Rice Flour
  • 1 can Coconut Milk
  • 1 tsp Dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 3 cups Water
  • Salt to taste
  • How to Make Vellayappam:

    1. Warm up 2 tbsp of water, add sugar and mix in the yeast.
    2. In a bowl, mix together the flour and coconut milk and make it into a paste. Make sure there are no lumps.
    3. Gradually, add water and make a thin batter (like the consistency of dosa batter).
    4. Add the dissolved yeast and salt and mix thoroughly.
    5. Allow the batter to ferment for 6-8 hours.
    6. When the batter has risen, it's ready to use.
    7. Heat a non-stick tawa.
    8. Pour in 1 ladle of batter, lift the tawa and rotate it slowly once so that the batter spreads evenly.
    9. Cover and let it cook in the steam for 1 minute.
    10. Remove the appam using a spatula when done.
    11. Serve hot with a spicy side dish (korma).
