Recipe Ingredient

  • 225g rice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1.7 litres coconut milk (add just enough water to one grated coconut and squeeze out the milk)
  • 1/8 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • Oil for greasing


  1. Grind the rice in a blender till fine. Remove and put into a mixing bowl. Add salt, bicarbonate of soda and coconut milk; mix. Leave aside, covered with a damp tea towel, overnight.
  2. Before the batter is used, whip it to make it light. Heat a small pan. Dip the end of a clean towel into oil. Lightly grease the pan using the towel.
  3. Pour in a small ladle of batter and turn the pan around so that the batter runs up the sides of the pan, giving it a somewhat lacy effect. Cover with a lid.
  4. When the batter is cooked in the middle and becomes firm, remove from pan. Keep the appam warm on a tea-towel placed in clean plasticware.
