KARUPATTI AAPAM / PALM SUGAR AAPAM





 I am deligted to host a wonderful event South Vs North Challenge  , brain child of Divya Pramil . I admire her excellency in writing , photography , blogging .. and it goes on .Feeling happy to have such a lovely sister .




For this month Challenge on behalf of South Indian Team , i came up with this authentic Tamilnadu special breakfast recipe , KARUPATTI AAPPAM / PALM JAGGERY AAPPAM . Palm jaggery is good for gastric troubles and aids digestion .

INGREDIENTS :

Boiled rice - 1 cup
Raw rice - 1 cup
Urat dal - 1  handful
Karuppatti - 250 gms




METHOD OF PREPARATION :

1) Make thick palm jaggery syrup .
2) Filter it and remove the impurities with a strainer once cooled.




3) Soak rice and dal for only 2 hours and grind it to a very smooth batter.No fermentation needed.
4) Finally , mix palm jaggery syrup with the batter without any lumps.
5) Heat aappam tawa or any non-stick kadai . Pour a small ladle of batter in the centre and then hold its handle with both the hands and rotate the kadai , hence the ladle will spread like a dosa. 




6) Spread a spoon of oil over it.
7) Cover with a lid . Cook in slow flame till done .
8) The centre part will be of and edges crispy .Just roll over and serve hot .

Appam. Heard a lot about it. Now will try for SNC.
Is there any substitute for palm sugar. We don't get it here. Can we use jaggery instead.

Hi Shama,

Somehow and old auto saved version got uploaded by mistake, leaving out an entire set of pictures out completely.I have updated the post. Do take a look when you get a chance. And thanks again for the lovely challenge, I love the batter, it's so versatile :)

thelady8home said...

I posted a little while ago.....it didn't get posted :(

I updated my post Shama. For some weird reason, a previous auto saved version got saved my me by mistake and that post got published, leaving out an entire album of Appam pictures. Now I have updated the post. Do check.
