I got this recipe from here. But i did not follow the same method which was given there instead i used my mom’s method for ease n convenience.The result was fluffy ,soft aapam which we had with vegetable stew. We loved it.Thanks to solai aachi for this wonderful recipe. This is sure a keeper. There are so many aapam recipes on net. Even i had posted some from my friend. Most of the recipes have urad dal , methi seeds and coconut milk .I was also making aapam using these ingredients. But my mom said it would smell more like dosa . She also said aapam has a typical coconut smell and taste. So this time i used only rice n coconut. As my mom said , it has that smell n taste. Next time i am planning to try solai achi’s authentic method and post it
We had aapam with **sweetened coconut milk and vegetable stew.
** For Sweetened coconut milk
Grind 1/4 cup of grated coconut with 1/4 cup of warm water and take the first extract.Add 3- 4 tsp of sugar and 2 crushed cardamom pods.Mix well , heat for few secs . Pour it on top of aapam and enjoy..
TIPS from Mrs.Mallika badrinath:
1. When bubbles does not form in the dosa, add little more cooking soda.
2. If the bottom of the dosa sticks to the pan and doesn’t come out well that shows coconut milk added is more than the required measure.
