Appam ,Kallappam,Palappam or Hoppers, are a type of food in Kerala and Sri Lankan cuisine.  It is eaten most frequently for breakfast or dinner.Appam looks like a pan cake and is made of rice flour.Its usually eaten with a spicy curry,but my daughter even likes to have it with sugared coconut milk.


Rice Flour – 2 cups
Semolina – 1/3rd cup
Medium coconut milk – 1/2 cup
Thick coconut milk – 1 cup
Yeast – 1/2 teaspoon
Sugar – 2 teaspoon
Salt-1/4 tsp
Water – 3 cups


Add 2 cups of water to semolina and cook. Cook until it looks like porridge.Take 2 cups of rice flour and add  3 cups of water and coconut milk. Add the cooked semolina and mix well.You can do the mixing in a mixie Add the yeast and sugar mix and mix well.Keep it for fermenting it may take from 1 hr to 8 hours depending on the yeast and temperature.If its cold switch on the oven light and leave the batter there. After 3 hrs or when the batter has doubled  mix the batter well and add the thick coconut milk little by little. Add salt and sugar to taste. Heat Appachatti or a pan and  pour 1/4 cup of batter into it and rotate the appachatti and cover and cook for about 2 minutes in medium heat. Once the middle portion is cooked, remove the cover and cook for another 30 seconds uncovered .Remove from fire and serve with stew or curry of your choice.
