Easy Appam



  1. White rice/ Pachari – 2 cups
  2. Grated coconut – 1 cup
  3. Sugar – 6 tsps.
  4. Instant yeast – 1/2 tsp. (level)
  5. Water – as needed
  6. Salt to taste


  1. Soak the white rice in water for 5-6 hours. Drain water from the rice.
  2. Grind the rice to a coarse powder.
  3. Take 2 tbsps of this coarse rice powder & mix it with 1/2 cup of water. Cook on medium low heat till you get a rice porridge/kappi. Let this cool down slightly.
  4. Now grind the rice adding grated coconut, sugar, the cooled paste & yeast to a very smooth paste adding enough water.
  5. Transfer the batter to a big vessel. Keep it aside for 5-6 hours.
  6. Add salt & add enough water to make the batter slightly thin. The batter should be thinner than dosa batter.
  7. Heat a pan till it becomes really hot. Lower heat to medium & pour a ladleful of batter on the pan. The batter should spread by itself into a circle. A lot of bubbles will appear on the surface of the appam.
  8. Cook both sides of the appam over a medium heat.
  9. Serve hot with a curry of your choice.
