Omanayappam


Rice 1 1/2 cup
Aval white (Poha) 1 cup
Coconut 1 cup
Urud dal 1 Tsp
Sugar as rqrd
Yeast 1/4 Tsp
Salt as rqrd
Water as rqrd

Soak the rice and urud dal overnight. Grind together aval and coconut with little water and keep it aside. Clean well and grind rice and urud dal. Combine the above grounded ingredients and mix well. Add required amound of salt and yeast. Keep it over night. After it rises completely, add sugar and mix well. Keep it aside for another 1/2 an hour. Do not stir it again. Heat thava and pour a spoon full of batter (take batter from the top without stirring it). Cover it with a lid and cook well.

Note: Do not turn the appam to cook the other side, as we do for dosai. The right time to take the appam is when it's surface will be filled with a lot of holes and turns slightly dry. For all types of appams, the best time to add sugar is about half an hour before you intend to cook it.
