This dish is similar to kuzhi paniyaram. The only difference here is you add Channa Dal Moong Dal while preparing the batter. In my MIL’s place during Karthigai Dheepam she makes Uppapam(savory appam) and sweet appam for dinner. She usually deep fries the batter in oil which gives a very crunchy texture to the appam. However I chose to prepare it in Paniyaram/Appe pan.The batter has to be fermented for at least 3-4 hours to get soft appams. So plan accordingly and prepare the batter.
I have attempted to bake cakes(twice) before but all were disasters.Then I stopped attempting.For the past few months I have been looking for baking classes/places where I could learn basic baking techniques and recipes. While browsing through internet happened to check this website Artisans and I was impressed immediately. The only thing that bothered me was distance.I had to use all modes of transport(share auto/Train/Bus)to reach that place 😉 but still was determined to learn. And as always Shiva encouraged me to just go ahead and enroll.I am gifted such a wonderful partner who supports me at every walk of life. Touch Wood :-D.
