I haven't been blogging for a while, for all the reasons Mommies take a break from blogging. Hoping to be more regular and catch up with your blogs soon.
Sharing with you today one of our family's all-time favourite breakfast. A south Indian classic called Appam or hoppers. I learnt this from my mom, in fact what you see is prepared by her since she's visiting me. Appam served with chicken stew is usually prepared for occassions like Christmas or Easter morn or a family get-together.
These appams are prepared in a bowl shaped pan called 'appa chetty'. The inner portion has a lovely laced effect as you can see here.
2 1/2 cups rice
1 cup cooked rice
200ml coconut milk
1/2 tsp yeast
- Soak rice in water for 6 hours.
- Just before grinding prepare the yeast- in warm water stir in the sugar and yeast and leave till it froths.
- Grind in batches into a smooth batter.
- In the last batch after grinding add the cooked rice and coconut milk and grind to a smooth paste.
- Mix the entire batter with the yeast and leave to ferment overnight.
- In the morning stir the risen batter well, add the sugar and salt to taste.
- Fry in the appa-chetty on one side to get a lovely laced appam.
- Serve hot with chicken stew.
