    hey path,u din tell how your appams came out?is dat it was not soft?n next time when u mix,be careful about the amount of water you add.if its less u can always modify it,but if its moore means no way.its the same with all ingredients in cooking..

    Hi…i’ve come across a few recipes with semolina in it. Why is semolina used? Is that also a reason for the yellowish color of the appams? Thanks!

  • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

    Hi Zarina

    First of all, my apologies for replying so late :(

    Regarding using semolina, I think its used to make the appams soft. Appams are usually white colour and adding semolina doesnt affect the colour. Mine has a slightly yellowish colour in the pic is because of the lighting. will try to put a new pic soon :)

  • smitha

    OK , I agree with u all. palappam is very tasty.
    But dont u think in this busy world making all this ingredients is very crazy. iI really fed up with thi kitchen work.
    But……….
    I realised………………..
    the fast and easy way to make palappam………..
    Have u been heard about ……………

    Try it out , so fast u can make it.
    It is crispy and tasty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

    Smitha…

    Good to know that easy palappam mix works well for you, but somehow I didnt work that well for me. Moreover these days coconut milk is available in cans, so for me at least its not a time consuming process.

    sometimes the Appams become more brown on the bottom…what may be the reason?
    Btw.,i like the homemade ones as compared to the ready mix ones…:)

    • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

      Hi Vijaya

      It may be because of the high flame that appam becomes brown on the bottom. Try cooking on a low-medium flame. Hope it helps.

      Me too like the home made ones :)

    Hi Maria,

    I am not sure if you check the comments on old posts. Anyway, I tried this recipe and it came out absolutely yummy. I had guests for brunch on Sunday and everyone loved it. Thanks a lot!

    Hi Maria,
    Can we use coconut milk powder instead of cocnut milk can? will the result be the same?

    Luv

      Hi Neethu,

      I use maggi coconut milk powder for making appam and it comes out well for me.

  • Ann Sebastian

    Hi Maria,

    I have been trying my luck with Palappam (using other recipes), but has not been successful so far. I am thinking of trying your recipe soon. Given my previous failures, just wanted to clarify a few things. I guess(from comments) you are using canned coconut milk. How do you prepare thick and thin milk? Do you dilute it? Or, do you get to buy it that way there. The place where live in, we have only canned coconut milk and canned coconut cream.
    Please shed some light into the confusions!!
    Hoping to receive a reply soon,
    Ann

    • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

      Hi Ann

      I use maggi coconut milk powder to make coconut milk. I havent tried canned coconut milk yet. However I think you can use canned coconut milk too for making palappam.

      For thick coconut milk,use the canned coconut milk as such. For medium thick coconut milk, dilute it with water.

      Hope this helps and all the best for making appam :)

      Cheers

  • Resmi

    Hi Maria

    Its Resmi again:-0 I have become a recent visitor now:-).I am a fresher now in cooing. Hence, stuck up with a lot of doubts. :-(. I was wondering about the Semolina. How long should we cook? Should we cook it till it becomes upma… Appreciate ur help…

    • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

      Hi Resmi,

      Cook the semolina till it becomes soft. It will take only 5-7 mins or so. It doesnt have to become upma. It should be the consistency of a kurukku.

      Hope its clear.

      Cheers

  • glory

    what kind of yeast do u use? i have tried to make appam so many times and mine never rises. I use active dry yeast. I place the batter in the oven with the light on…still it does not rise.

    • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

      Hi Glory,

      I also use active dry yeast. Make sure you are using new yeast, use it from a fresh packet.

      Also add lukewarm water only to the yeast and keep on stirring it is dissolved. Even if it forms a lump initially, keep stirring and it should be fine.

      You are already keeping it in oven, so I dont know any other tips apart from the above.

      Hope your appam rises well next time.

      All the best!

      Cheers

    Hi Maria

    Instead of using semolina, kappi kachiyathe is also good. why to use cocunut powder ?.

    While making appam, i never use cocunut powder.

    • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

      Hi Shami,

      I use coconut milk powder to make coconut milk, I find it easier than making fresh coconut milk :)

  • Dhanya

    Hey Maria…. i’ve been wanting to make appam coz my husband likes it a lot and its a good change too…. and now with Xmas round the corner i reallly wanted to make this with ur chicken stew…. but have a silly doubt….. when u say rice flour is it arripodi or rice soaked and ground in mixie with cooked rice? if its latter could you tell me the proportion?

    • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

      Dhanya dear, how are you? I’ve used readymade aripodi for this recipe. I used Nirapara brand appam & idiyappam podi (not the instant ones). You can use appam or idiyappam podi of any brand for making this.

      Have fun making appams :)

  • Grace

    Hi MariaGoing through your website I found your appam receipe. Going to try it out difinately. Do i have to broil the rice flour first. The whole family loves appams and I definately want to give it a try. Will be looking forward to your reply.

    • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

      Hi Grace,

      I’m sorry dear, I didnt understand exactly what you mean by broiling the rice flour..do you mean dry roasting it? If that’s the case, you dont have to do that if you are using ready made appam podi.

      Cheers

  • Vats

    Hi Maria,

    I am new to your blog and I am going to try palappam today. This will be my first recipe from your blog. I want to know how you prepare thin coconut milk and thick coconut milk from instant coconut milk powder? Or do you use the extract from fresh coconut?

    Will appreciate your suggestion.

    Great blog!

    rgds
    Vats

    • http://mariasmenu.com Maria Jose

      Hi Vats,

      Thanks for visiting this space :). I do hope your palappam comes out well. I make coconut milk with coconut milk powder only. For thin coconut milk, you need to add 1 tbsp of coconut milk powder (CMP) to 1 cup of lukewarm water. For medium thick milk, add 2tbsp of CMP to 1 cup of luke warm water & for very thick milk, add 3 tbsp of CMP to 1 cup of luke warm water.

      Hope this helps…

      Cheers

  • Hi_tina1

    One query maria
    I have tried palappam several times but failed miserably,believe me with the mixes too.the water measurements fail.i get palappams but not the ones i desire.i want to try this method.here in US we get plain rice flour.can i use this for the above reciepe.

    • http://mariasmenu.com Maria Jose

      Hi Tina,

      I use Nirapara brand appam podi. I’m not sure whether appams with plain rice flour works out. May be you can try a small batch and see. If you can get hold of any appam podi brand, that will be great.

      I do hope your appam comes out well, best wishes!

      Cheers

  • Megha Jor

    hi Maria
    I followed the above receipe..But it tastes pullipu :(..Nest day morning does the batter rise? For mine it dint.,also i do not hav appachetti..instead i use dosa kallu.What else we should be careful about while making this?

    • http://mariasmenu.com Maria Jose

      Hi Megha,

      I’m not sure why it happened like that. Do you live in a cold place? Usually the batter takes longer time to rise in cold climate.

      Please check out the kallappam recipe in the site. It takes lesser time to rise & it can also be made in dosa kallu.

      Cheers

    Hi Maria, 
    I am a recent visitor and just kept the Palappam for rising.. Somehow, after mixing all the ingredients, i found that the batter is more like a dough. Will the consistency come out fine after adding the thick coconut milk tomorrow? If it does not, will adding a little water be alright?  Thank you :)

    • http://mariasmenu.com Maria Jose

      Hi Jerin,

    Hi Maria,  Just wanted to let you know that the Palappam came out really well I did add a little more water though to adjust the consistency. ! It took a little more time to rise as its kinda cold here.. I kept the mixture in our apt room , where the heater vent is located and that did the trick :D thanks for sharing this easy yummy recipe :) 

    • http://mariasmenu.com Maria Jose

    Hi Maria,

    I am a new visitor to ur blog. I tried this palappam yesterday. Actually if I cook in medium low flame I am not getting holes in the appam. It looks plain. can u pls help me? Also pls suggest how much salt and sugar we should use while cooking? thank u so much for the recipe….

    • http://mariasmenu.com Maria Jose

      Hi Pavithra,

      Please try cooking on med-high flame and see. I think the heat level varies for each stove. About the sugar and salt qty, salt I always go by trial and error method dear, so I’m sorry I wont be able to give you an exact measurement. For the qty mentioned in the recipe, you can use around 3-4 tbsp of sugar.

      Hope your appam comes out perfect next time. All the best dear!

      Hi,

      The consistency of the batter before adding thick coconut milk is similar to that of Idli batter, not so thick, but thick. The final palappam batter has the consistency similar to that of milk.

      hhmm I havent used canned coconut milk yet. I normally use coconut milk powder. I think the canned coconut milk you get is thick coconut milk. Dilute it with water to get medium thick and thin consistency. Hope this helps..

      Hi Gayathri,

      Congrats on your marriage :)

      Great to know that you find the recipes here helpful.

      The brown frills depends on the flame. You heat the chatti nicely, but make sure it’s not over heated also. If it’s over heated the batter will not spread nicely.

      Once the chatti is heated well, reduce the flame to the lowest, pour the batter and spread it. Increase the flame to low -med, when the appam is almost cooked, bring it to med-high, then remove the appam from chatti.

      Hope this helps..

      Cheers
      Maria

    Hey Maria.
    Im from the US and I have an induction (smooth) stove top. will I be able to make these appams using appachatti. I have been craving for this for a long time now.

      Hi Zoya,

      As long as your appachatti is induction cooker friendly, you can make appam on that.

      Hope you get to eat appam soon :)

      Hi Triya,

      I’ve never tried readymade palappam mix, so I’m not sure how it works :((

    Hii maria, im akshaye here. the appam we normally make at home and that we get in hotels and buffets are entirely different. the one which we make on home is more crispier than the others. I had tried a lot making the non crispier appam. but failed. is there any secret in the recipies of hotels? Im uploding the two pics of the appam that i had mentioned here. the soft non crispier one and the crispier one. please advice how to make the soft one like 1st image.
    thank you

      Hi Akshaye,

      hhmm, I’m not sure wtr there is any diff in the appam batter used by hotels.

      If you want a soft appam, try cooking the appam on low heat. From my experience, appam tends to soft when cooked on low flame. Also keep the batter slightly thicker. When the batter is too thin, I guess it makes the edges crispier.

      Hope this helps..

      Cheers
      Maria
