How to Make Appam - Hoppers

  • Combine first four ingredients together and wash 3-4 times.
  • Soak in sufficient water for 2 hours.
  • Strain the water and use it for grinding.
  • Grind the soaked ingredients into a fine paste. Use water as required.
  • Add salt and, using your hand, mix batter thoroughly.
  • Keep aside for 8-10 hours or overnight, to let it ferment.
  • After 8 hours batter should have risen to double the original quantity and also have a foamy texture at the top.
  • Mix the fermented batter and dilute it with required amount of water. It should be a little thinner than dosa batter.
  • Cooking:
  • Before making appam, dilute baking soda with 2 tsp of water and mix it to the batter.
  • Heat appam pan or non-stick wok on medium heat and grease it with a little oil.
  • Whisk and take a ladle full of batter, pour it in the centre of the pan, and immediately swirl the pan so that batter gets coated on the sides of the pan.
  • Cover the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  • When it is lacy and crispy on its edges and thick and spongy in the middle, remove from the pan.
  • Serve with stew or coconut milk.
