Appam with Vegetable Stew & Kerala Egg Roast

Appam is God’s own country’s revered food and most popular among Kerala breakfast recipes that are healthy and easy to make. These white lacy pancakes have a crisp side with an airy, soft on touch, fluffy center. Appam recipe uses minimal ingredients, simple to make and usually served with a range of sides like vegetable stew or chicken stew, sweetened coconut milk, , chutney and kadala curry.

The alternate methods for fermenting appam batter are yeast or cooked appam batter in place of toddy. I have prepared appam recipe with both yeast as well as cooked appam batter and I prefer the latter in terms of flavor. I served Appam with Kerala style vegetable stew and egg roast, the recipes of which I will post tomorrow.

    • Well, breakfast is when you just wake up, so your sugar levels are low and oranges have sugar. As well the citric acid gives a "jolt" to your taste buds, and gives one the feeling of refreshment. It's a good way to start your day! My daughter tells me it's high in vitimin C, which is true, but I doubt it's the reason for having a desire for this beverage in the morning.
