APPAM AND KERALA STYLE VEGETABLE STEW

Everyone who have tasted authentic Kerala dishes will love appaam n puttu. Appam is the one dish which my mother and grand mother have never tried. 

Always i was in love with these appams.. with crispy edges n soft pillowy inside. A big bowl of coconut milk goes well with these appams.. But my love for veg stew has no limits.. A very quick to make side dish if all ingredients are in hand..
Ingredients for Appam:
1 cup - Raw Rice
1 cup - Idli Rice
1/2 cup - Urad dhal
1/4 tsp - Fenugreek seeds
1/2 cup - Coconut milk (which i did not add)
Water - as req


Method:
Wash and soak the above ingredients for 3 hrs and grind them to smooth and thin batter. Add salt mix well and ferment overnight.


Next day morning mix the batter well and make appams in appam pan.


Ingredients for Vegetable stew: 
3 – Potatoes, cubed
1 – Carrot, cubed
¼ cup – Frozen Green Peas 
1 no – Onion, sliced (white onion preferred)
½” – Ginger, thinly sliced
4 no - Cloves 
1/2” - Cinnamon 
4 pod - Cardamom 
6 no - Black pepper corns (slighlty crushed)
8 no - Green chillies, slit
½ cup – Thick Coconut milk 
2 sprig - Curry leaves 
1 tbsp - Coconut oil or any cooking oil
Salt 

Method: 

Pressure cook potato and carrot for 1 whistle with ¼ tsp salt.


In a pan heat oil, add onion, ginger, chillies, curry leaves, cloves, cinnamon n cardamom jus mix them and add the veggies to it add salt add ½ cup water and close the lid. (Onions should not be fried the color should be retained)


In 4 min the vegetables will be cooked add coconut milk and simmer for another 3 min and switch off the stove. Serve hot with appam!!!

  8. Your appams have come out well.Tempting ones.you know Kalpana,this is the way Tamil appams are being made.Since they use urad dal instead of yeast,the fermentation will be done that way.But in real kerala style appam,we either use yeast or toddy/coconut water for fermentation.

    Lovely post.Am drooling over !
