Aapam-Coconut Milk

This is a repost from my first blog post which was long long ago.Rethinking, it is actually not so long ago.Its just that I took a short break soon after my blog start ..crazy me !!!!
The reason for the repost being the combo event by Pari

Coming to the combo-Aapam and Coconut milk,isnt that a lovely one?. Infact I'm going to make that tonight :D

  • 1 cup of boiled rice
  • 1 cup of raw rice
  • 1 cup of grated coconut(Can be replaced by shredded coconut)
  • 1tsp of urad dal
  • 1tsp of fenugreek seeds(vendhayam)
  • Crystal Salt
  • Baking soda(Soda uppu)
  • Soak all the ingredients with the grated coconut for nearly 4-5 hours.
  • Grind the mixture to a nearly smooth batter,little bit coarse is fine.
  • The consistency should be between idli and dosa batter.
  • Add the salt and keep it for fermentation.
  • After the batter is fermented , this could take overnight, add the baking soda and mix thoroughly.
  • Take the appam pan , grease it with oil using a paper towel or cloth and pour the batter.
  • Spread it such that it is thin in the edges and thicker in the middle.
  • Keep in medium flame and cover the lid.
  • After a few minutes open it once and check if the sides are roasted.
  • Once the sides are roasted and the center portion is cooked your aapam is ready !

Coconut Milk


  • 1/2 coconut
  • jaggery or sugar to taste(I used jaggery)
  • Cardamon

    • Grate the coconut and add it to the blender/mixie with little water.
    • Mash it well,take out and extract the juice.
    • Put in the smashed coconut again into the blender with water and extract the juice again.
    • Repeat this process 2  times to get the coconut milk.
    • Take the required amount of jaggery and smash it into fine powder. 
    • Add this to the coconut milk and mix well until all lumps are gone. 
    • If you are using sugar you can add just like adding sugar to any milk. 
    • Finally peel cardamon and add it to the mixture.

    • If your batter is thin you will not be able to get proper aapams.
