  • Raw rice : 1 cup
  • Grated coconut : ½ to ¾ cup
  • Cooked rice : ½ cup
  • Instant yeast : ¼ Tsp
  • Sugar : 3 Tbsp
  • Water
  • Salt

Soak rice for 2 to 5 hrs. Then grind it with grated coconut and the cooked rice using required amount of water. The batter consistency should be thinner than the dosa batter. Add yeast into the batter and mix well. Keep it  overnight  in a warm place to ferment.

Once it is fermented, add the required amount of sugar and salt into the batter and stir it well. Then keep it unstirred  for ½ hr. Next, heat the appa chatti and pour a big round spoon (thavi) full of batter into it. Then spread the batter by rotating the appa chatti. Cover and cook it for 2 to 3 mins. When the edges turn brown, remove it from the pan and serve it hot with veg or non-veg curry.

Some curries which may go with palappam are Vegetable Stew, Creamy Cashew Chicken, Nadan Chicken Curry, Traditional Chicken Roast, Beef Curry, Fish Molly or Egg Roast.

An alternate method of preparation of Palappam is also given here.
