Each and every type or variation of dosa recipe has its own interesting history and humble story, to begin with. so is to do with the famous Kerala appam recipes. These bowl-shaped thin pancakes are believed to be invented by the migrating Jewish Indian community from the Malabar or Kochi region in Kerala. Initially, these Jewish communities referred to it as Kalappam and are prepared or fermented with Toddy or coconut wine. The most common side dish served with it is spicy mutton curry. It is also said that the origin may have come from the Kerala Christian community. But all these origins have one thing in common and i.e non-veg side curry. However, the current form of Appam is served with coconut milk-based vegetable stew, This combo is ideal for all the dietary requirements including both veg and meat-eaters. Do try this combo meal for your next breakfast or dinner meal and let me know the taste and softness of it.

in addition, I would like to add some more tips, suggestions and variations to the appam recipe. Firstly, the fermentation of ground batter is very important and it can be achieved in various ways. I have followed the simple and traditional way of overnight fermentation. you may fast track it by adding yeast, soda or even coconut toddy. Secondly, as a popular combo, I have shown stew on top of this dosa. This is not a must and you can even be served with any non-veg curry or even simple coconut chutney. Lastly, these vellayappam recipes are prepared in a purpose-based bowl-shaped tawa which gives it a unique bowl shape. well, it is significant for this recipe, but if you do not have it, you may use any dosa pan or non-stick dosa pan.
