Vella Aapam

Here I would like to share my most successful try of the Kerala Vella Aapam.
Earlier many times I have tried but would enp up with some flaws.
But this time, was really a huge success.


2 cups Rice Flour
Dry Yeast - 1 tsp
Sugar - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Coconut - 1


Soak rice for minimum 5 hours.
Grind the rice nicely to a smooth paste.
To a quarter cup warm water, add the yeast and sugar.

To 1 and half cup hot water, add 3 tbsp of the grinded rice paste.
Keep stirring until you get a very thick dough kind.

Now add this thick rice dough and the yeast mixture to the rice batter.
Allow to ferment for 8 hours.
Take coconut milk from a coconut.

Add the coconut milk into the rice mixture.
Add salt and sugar.
In a kadai, pour the batter and allow to get cooked.

Soft, puffy Aapams are ready.
Best goes with egg curry, stew, kurma.
