    Hi Deepu, Today i prepared aapam for breakfast again in leftover batter. It was very very tastier than yesterday aapam. Usually in my method i grind in the morning & keep for fermentation & for dinner i make aapam. Like that i prepared yesterday. But i think in ur method 1 day old batter tastes good. I added 1/4 tsp yeast to get more ferment taste.
    Promise Deepu i never ever tasted like this aapam. simply superb. Thaks a lot.

    Hi Deepu, prepared ur aapam for dinner. Really superb. Nice flavor. Deepu, we have to dilute the batter or not. Without diluting it comes good but, i added little water that aapam comes little bit sticky. Tell me the trick. Thanks for the good recipe.

    Hiiii ,
    In Sri Lanka they only make with red raw rice (sivapu pacha arisi) and coconut. it looks different. Using ulunthu is good for health. Thambi’s favourite… I like the centre part… thotal mathiri thala thalanu irukume… I luv it. Good one… Yet for sure cant make at all here…

    Hi Deepu,
    Sure i’ll try this method.Last saturday only i made aappam.So, i’ll try after a week & let u know.
    Actually i want to try u’r payasam too.
    I have some doubts about aappam prep. , that’s can i grind coconut with water? Because in my blender i couldn’t grind without water.
    Next in winter coconuts are leaving oil while grinding chutneys.Is that ok for aappam batter?thanks.

      Hi kavi,  You can also add some water while grinding Coconut. I  am using  Indian Mixie so i can grind coconut w/o water. So only i mentioned like that.

      It wont affect the appam batter.

    Hi kavi, Coconut is important–that's the main ingredient. It gives nice flavour and unique taste to appam. Try this and get back to me with the results 

    Thanks Deepa
