I am very happy to take a part of SNC challenge which is started by Divya of You Too Can Cook. In this event two team challenge each other with their traditional and authentic dish.This month Southern team challenges us with this regional recipe Karupatti Appam by Shama of easy 2 Cook Recipes and southern team got a challenge to make Gujrat famous farsan - Khandvi from Hetal of Gujrati Zaika.
Karupatti Appam is a very popular street food in Tamilnadu. appam is made with rice and dal mixture that is a type of steamed indian pancake. I served this appam with Aloo matar sabzi and tomato sauce. After tasting this appam I just love this. Thanks a lot to Shama for this awesome challenge.
Boiled rice - 1 cup
Raw rice - 1 cup
Urad dal - a handful
Palm jaggery (Karupatti) - 250 gms
Make a thick jaggery syrup. Once cool then filter it and remove all the purities by using strainer.
Soak the rice and dal for 2-3 hours. Grind it to a smooth batter no farmentation needed.
Finally mix jaggery syrup with the batter without any lumps.
Heat appam tawa, pour a small ladle of batter in the center then hold its hadle with the hands and rotate the pans, hence the ladle will spread like a dosa.
Spread a spoon of oil over it, cover with a lid and cook it slow flames till done.
The center part will be of and edge crispy. Just roll over.
Serve hot Karupatti Appam with sabzi & tomato sauce.
