Wheat appam

This is a recipe I got from a friend & cousin of mine swapnachechi. She is a talented cook and is always into something. So yesterday when we went visiting, she gave me this wonderful breakfast idea, which is very healthy too. It is the vella-appam made of wheat flour and raw rice powder mix

Ingredients
  • Wheat flour - 2 cups
  • Raw rice powder - 1 cup
  • Yeast - 1 tsp
  • Sugar - 1 tsp
  • Milk + water (taken in equal proportions to get a thick batter)
  • Salt
  • Egg -1 (optional)

Method
  • Mix yeast, sugar and a little lukewarm water. Keep aside.
  • Add the milk & water combination to the dry ingredients and mix well until u get a thick smooth batter.
  • There shouldn't be any lumps.
  • Now add the foamed yeast to the batter and brisk well.
  • Add salt and keep aside for a whole night/8-10 hrs
  • In the morning add 1 tbsp sugar and a beaten egg. Keep aside for 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes, batter is ready to be poured on a medium heated tawa for getting round vella appams

Notes
  • Egg is optional and can be avoided
  • Make sure the yeast has foamed up before adding it to the batter.
  • Add sugar and keep the fermented batter for 10 minutes before making appams. 
  • This appam goes well with spicy kadala curry and masala chicken curries much more than the usual veg/non-veg stews.
