Aapam is a mixture of rice and coconut milk served as breakfast in general. My recipe might be different from other’s cos people i know add urad dal and some add parboiled rice too. But this is how i prepare aapam and the ouput i get is a soft, spongy crispy on the ends and a tasty aapam. Try my recipe for once and u’ll feel the difference…

Ingredients :

Raw rice — 2 cup
Cooked rice — 1 cup

Thick coconut milk — Taken out from half a coconut.
Baking soda — a dash
Salt — to taste
Sugar — 1 tsp

Method :

Saok the rice for 2 to 3 hours and grind it along with cooked rice and make a fine batter . Cover it and ferment overnite. Next day ur batter would have finished doing fermentation process if everthiing goes right, i mean, temperature. U may preheat the oven to 180 deg F for 5 minutes, then switch off and keep the batter overnite for fermentation. Make the batter ready for making aapam by adding coconut milk. If the batter is thick, u may again add more coconut milk. Keep in mind that consistency should be of dosa batter. Now add the salt ,Baking soda and sugar. Trust me, Sugar gives more taste. Combine well. Keep the aapa chatti (Pan for making aapam) in the medium heat. When the pan is hot, add the batter (1/4 cup ) and slowly spread the batter in all sides. ( u may have to rotate the pan ) Cover it. Wait for few minutes.

When it is cooked and ready , u may see the batter turned to a crispy layer getting off from the sides.

It is the right time to take out from the pan.

Repeat the process for the remaining aapams u gonna make. Serve with Stew or Coconut milk.
