To make these appams, all the ingredients are blend to a fine paste. Additionally, the batter is kept for fermentation. The process of fermentation takes from 5 to7 hrs based on the temperature or climatic conditions of each region.

Appams are served with vegetable stew, kadala curry (chickpea curry), potato stew, vegetable korma, coconut chutney, or sweetened milk. I love to have appams with sweetened coconut milk.
