the recipe for palappam can be prepared in many ways. the alteration is mainly with the way coconut is added and the fermentation process it involves. in this recipe of kerala appam, i have mixed the grated coconut and soaked rice just before grounding it to a smooth batter. alternatively the store bought coconut milk can also be added to plain rice batter. in addition instead of grounding the soaked rice, rice flour can also be used to make a thin batter. furthermore, the fermentation of rice batter is a key step to yield a soft and crisp palappam recipe. the batter can be fermented with baking soda, yeast or even with palm toddy or taadi (an alcoholic beverage). you can check my previous plain appam recipe for detailed instructions to prepare it with yeast.

appam recipe without yeasti would like to share few tips and recommendations to be considered while preparing kerala palappam recipe. firstly, i have used idli rice in this recipe for better fermentation and result. you can use normal day to day rice like sona masuri but i heavily recommend to use idli rice for better result. secondly, as mentioned previously fermentation is key process. but if you are living in a cold region, you can place the batter in preheated oven to hasten the fermentation process. lastly, you can store the fermented batter in refrigerator for about 2-3 days and scoop out only required amount of batter to prepare spongy appam recipe.
