Appam recipe with step by step photos. Sharing the traditional appam recipe with out yeast also known as hoppers recipe. This is my tried and tested appam recipe that I very often make at home. Appam is served with coconut milk , stew and kurma.
Appam is a popular south Indian breakfast Appam is a feather light crepe with lacy crispy edges and soft fluffy center. It is a very popular healthy breakfast in Kerala too. There are few variations in this appam recipe, one is appam with yeast and the other one is appam without yeast. Today I am sharing the appam recipe without yeast. This recipe for appam is not only yeast free, I have also not added any baking soda or cooking soda here. Also I have added poha instead of cooked rice, it makes the appam really fluffy and tasty.
As I said above appam is a fermented crepe made with 2 types of rice, coconut and cooked rice. Addition of cooked rice makes the appam very soft and that can be easily achieved by adding poha. Adding coconut gives a slight sweet taste and keeps appam white. I suggest you use freshly grated relatively tender coconut for best results.
To make appam recipe usually raw rice and par boiled rice are used. The ratio of both rice varies from recipe to recipe. Urad dal is traditionally not used for appam.
Serve appam piping hot with veg stew, sweet coconut milk or spicy kara chutney
