appam recipe south indian style/soft appam without yeastAppam is a most celebrated breakfast/dinner dish among South Indians!!love this(appam recipe south Indian style)to the core especially with coconut milk. Traditionally they use appachetti made out of cast iron but now it is replaced with nonstick appa kadai.Myself was using a indolium appakadai,now have shifted to non stick kadai but …appam recipe south indian style/soft appam without yeaststill the deep curved portion of the indolium appakadai was more ideal!!gives a perfect curved appams and the sides are thin and crisp!Now again thinking making appams from my older appakadai for next time.When you are making appams from such steel kadai for first time should smear the kadai with half cut onions,by this you can very well ensure that the appams will not stick.For serving I sprinkle sugar on hot appams and pour the coconut milk (with cardamom powder) over it!I find it more enjoyable than mixing sugar directly to coconut milk itself.

Notes

For serving I sprinkle sugar on hot appams and pour the coconut milk (with cardamom powder) over it!I find it more enjoyable than mixing sugar to coconut milk itself. The first milk is used as side dish and the second milk is mixed with appam batter. Have not added sugar to the batter if you want you can add. The appam kadai should be hot when poured and should be closed and cooked in medium flame. Add baking soda only before making appams.
