  • NOTES
    • You can also use 1 cup raw rice and 1/2 cup basmati rice ,if desired.I feel adding 1/2 cup basmati rice makes appam more soft  and fluffy.
    • Adjust the quantity of water depending upon the type of rice you use.Basically the batter should be a bit watery so that the edges turn out really thin.
    • Adjust the quantity of sugar according to your taste.Adding a bit more sugar will help to get the edges golden brown.
    • Leftover batter can be refrigerated for upto 2 days.Bring down to room temperature before making appams.
    • You may serve appam with Nadan Mutta curryKerala Egg curry,Egg curry with potato ,Kadala curry,Kerala vegetable stew,Mutton stew,Kerala duck curry or even fish molly.
