1.5 cups White Rice (Preferred: Sona Masuri)
1.5 cups grated Coconut
1/3 tsp Dry Yeast
1 tsp Sugar
Salt to taste
Aappam Tawa / Chatti
Soak rice in water for about 6-8 hrs. Wash soaked rice 2-3 times and keep them aside.
Put 1/3 tsp dry east in a bowl. Add sugar and 1/4 cup of Luke warm water and mix them well. Keep it aside for about 30 mins.
Grind soaked rice, grated coconut into smooth paste by adding sufficient amount of water.
Take 2 Tbs of prepared batter, around 1/2 cup of water and mix them well and put it in a thick bottomed vessel/pan. Heat it in low/medium flame and keep stirring the batter until all the water content gets evaporated and forms a thick batter as shown in the picture below.
Add the above mix and east mix to the already ground batter and grind them together for about 1 min. Pour this to a vessel and ferment the batter for about 6-8 hrs.
Add required amount of salt, water and mix them well. The consistency of the batter should be like that of milk.
Heat the Aappam Chatti and pour the little amount of batter as shown in the picture below.
Immediately turn around the Chatti to spread the batter evenly as shown in the picture below.
Cover the lid and cook this for about 2-3 mins in low/medium flame.
Serve hot with ghee or coconut oil along with Kurma / Veg Stew / Chutney or Sambar. The ingredients mentioned above will serve around 15 Aappams. I tried this recipe from Link. Thanks for the recipe.
