Rice Appam


Cooking is a wonder. There are so many different things you can make out of the same ingredients. Appam is a south indian dish. It is very simple to make and yet so delicious and soft that it makes the consumer beg for more. It is more of a steam dish than a fried dish. You simply have to try it to know it. I have served coconut milk and mutton pulusu along with the appam which compliments each other in a beautiful way.

  1. Let the mix stay till bubbles erupt(only for a minute or so)
  2. Remember only one side is cooked

Coconut milk

  1. Grate a whole coconut
  2. Add water little by little while you grind the grated coconut
  3. After the whole coconut is grinded use a sieve to separate the coconut milk from the residue
  4. Add sugar according to your taste

Note : You can use packet of coconut milk that is found in market instead. I used fresh coconut since they are healthier and tastier
