Breakfast Dishes - Rice Pancakes
A typical Kerala dish
250 gm rice
11/2cup coconut milk
1 tsp dry yeast
2 tbsp sugar
salt to taste
Soak rice for 4-5 hours. Blend it to a smooth paste. Add coconut milk. Keep aside.
Add yeast to 1/2 cup of luke-warm water and sugar. wait for about 10 minutes till it ferments (the yeast will form bubbles at the surface of the liquid.)
Add the fermented yeast mixture, to the rice-coconut milk batter.
Cover the mixture, and keep aside for 6-8 hours, in a warm place, to ferment well.
Beat the eggs lightly. Mix in the batter. Heat oil in an 'appam pan' pour in 2 tbsp of batter and swirl it till the batter coats the sides of pan evenly. Let it cook. Carefully slide the appam out of the pan.
Repeat the above process to prepare several appams.
Serving tips: There are several ways of having appams - with butter and jam during breakfast; with sugar and coconut milk as dessert. Best had with stew as a meal.
