BOILED RICE AAPPAM

There are so many varieties in making aappams. Appams can be prepared either with Boiled rice or raw rice. For fermenting the aappam batter, peopel use coconut water, yeast, and soda bicarbonate. Some people prepare kanji with a handful of semolina and add to the batter when it is cooled. Some people grind the batter, remove it and wash the grinder with a little water. They prepare kanji with this washed water and add to the aappam batter when it is cooled. In this way, the aappam will be very soft the next day. Coconut paste is also the best fermenting agent for soft aappams. This aappam recipe belongs to my mother as well as my mother- in- law. This is a very simple preparation but it is very tasty and very soft.
For accompaniment, my mother always prepares coconut milk flavoured with cardamom powder and sugar. My mother in law prepares coocnut milk and jaggery syrup seperately. I always prepare this coocnut milk with the jaggery syrup for the first day and for the second day I prepare either chciken kurma  or vadai curry.
