Method:
1. Sock the rice in water for few hours.
2.Drain it and grind this with coconut(grated or powder) and cooked rice add enough milk.
3. Combine yeast in luke warm water and then add to coconut water mixture. Keep it for half an hour, for fermentation.
4.Add this to the grinded mixture and mix well.
5. Keep it over night for fermentation.
6.Next morning, mix egg white and salt together add this to the mixture,just check the batter and if it is not so sweet for you, you can add more sugar( but not too much).
7.Heat appachatti or a non-stick pan and pour a big spoon of mixture(2 to 3 tsp of batter together) and rotate the pan in circular shape holding both the handles of the pan to get the laze like edges as shown in the picture.
8.Cover this and cook in medium heat for 2-3 mnts if you get a bit golden shade to the edges your appam is ready to be served.
NO need to FLIP.
In a hurry?
Transfer rice batter to a micro-wave friendly container and in medium heat cook for 1/2 mnt.
Add warm water(not boiling) to a big dish and place the batter can in this. Replace this water twice. You can prepare appam with in 4 hours.
P.S : We use the same batter to prepare 2 pancakes. One is palapam and the other one is the vella appam.
Vella appam- you make in a pan like a thick dosa or a pancake. Use the above mentioned batter and prepare a normal pancake.
Palapam is the frilled one- The one with the golden Frill. The batter is more watery, bit more milk to the batter will make it bit runny.
