Appam(laced rice pancake)

                                        In the picture Appam and Egg curry
I have two recipes for this :
Recipe 1
Ingredients:-
Rice flour - 1 kg
Sooji rava - 1/4 cup
Thin coconut milk - 4 cups
Yeast - 1 tsp
Sugar - 3/4 tsp
Warm water - 3/4 cup
Sugar -1 tsp
Salt to taste
Method :-
Mix warm water with yeast and and sugar and set aside for 30 minutes for it to rise.
Bring to boil 2 cup  water , sooji rava and 1/4 cup rice flour, make a loose gruel out of it by stirring continuously and let it cool
Mix all these to the rice flour and make a thick batter with these. If you have a hand blender , it is so easy to mix this.
Cover it and Keep it in a warm place for 7-8 hours or overnight.
When it rises, add sugar  and salt to taste and make it in a thin consistency.
Heat the Appam griddle , pour 1 ladleful of batter and swirl it around .Cover the pan with a lid and let it cook for 2 minutes.Remove and serve warm.Repeat the process

Thanks for stopping by :)..
I am so sorry i forgot to mention it...
You can add the coconut milk along with the gruel when mixing it with rice flour...4 cups is a rough estimate , you can add more or less as to loosen or thicken the batter....

@ Razeena....Thanks for stopping by..
I normally use Kuththari rice or any parboiled rice for making choru..So i use that for making this..I have not used any other yet , so I am not sure about other rices.....
Hope this helps razeena :)

Thanks Sarah for this simpler version of homemade palappam..one question though..how do you make thin coconut milk? thanks.

I normally use canned coconut milk for everything.
So for thin i use roughly 25 % coconut milk plus 75 % water ratio. So if you are making one cup thin coocnut milk , I would say 1/4 cup canned coconut milk or may be less than that add water to make it a cup ..Hope this helps :)
