Vellakareppam (Kannur Appam)


Boiled rice - 1 cup
Maida - 1/4 cup
Sugar - to taste
Raisins - 1 tsp
Broken cashew nuts- 1 tsp
Cardamon powder - 1/2 tsp
salt-1 pinch
oil- for deep frying


Wash and soak rice for 2 hours. Drain the water and grind it to a smooth Paste.

Mix maida, sugar, nuts, raisins and cardamon powder with the batter. Mix well. The consistency of the batter should  be like idli batter. keep this batter overnight. 

Heat a Kara appa chetti or Paniyaram pan. Pour oil to 3/4 of each hole.  When the oil  becomes hot, reduce the flame to medium heat and fill the holes with the batter. Fill only up to 3/4 th of the hole. When its getting cooked, flip it over to the other side with a spoon or a skewer. Let the other side get cooked uncovered . Once cooked, remove and drain on a paper. Repeat the same Process for the rest of the batter.We should not make appam brown. Appam should be in white  color with edges light brown.

Super duper vella kareppam ready. With this measurement I could make 28 appams of this size.....:)
