  • 1 cup - raw rice
  • 1 cup - idly rice or par boiled rice
  • 1/4 tsp - asafoetida
  • 3/4 cup - coconut
  • 2 pinches - baking soda
  • Salt

How to Make Kerala Aapam

  • Soak both rice for 2 hours. Grind it along with coconut and asafoetida by adding some water (less than 1 cup). The batter should be of dosa batter consistency.
  • Once the batter becomes smooth and creamy (takes at least 15 to 20 minutes in the grinder), add salt and baking soda.
  • Run the grinder for 2 more minutes.
  • Heat a deep curved pan.
  • Add a few drops of ghee or oil.
  • Pour 1 or 2 ladles of batter in the centre.
  • You can either swirl the pan so that it is coated with the batter or spread the batter just like you would spread for dosa in a circular fashion.
  • Add a drop of oil around the edges.
  • Close the lid.
  • Simmer and cook on one side till it is done (approximately 5 minutes).
  • You don't have to flip it around.
  • Serve with any chutney or kurma.
