KARUPATTI APPAM / PALM SUGAR APPAM & AWARDS


I am very happy to take part of this interesting SNC event. A great going event started and organished by our sweet friend Divya Pramil from YOU TOO CAN COOK - INDIAN FOOD RECIPES. This is a monthly event where two teams, Southern and Northern team have to challenge each other with their authentic and regional dishes.

This month Northern team got a challenge to make Karupatti Appam from Shama Nagarajan. Same like Southern team got a challenge to make Gujrati Farsan - Khandvi from Hetal Acharya.
Long before I had this appam once from a street vendor, while I was travelling Chennai, yummy crispy sweet pancakes, at that time I didn't know its name, years gone, I forgot about that dish. But when I saw this month's challenge on Shama's space, then also I could not recall my memory. After tasting this yummy pancake, I remembered about our Chennai visit. Actually no need to have any side dish with this delicious appam, its itself is a complete meal. Thanks a lot Shama and Divy dear for this toothsome appam recipe, trully me and our whole family enjoyed this sweet appam a lot.

INGREDIENTS:

1 Cup Boiled Rice
1 Cup Raw Rice
Handful of Urad Dal
250 gm Karupatti (palm jaggery)
Oil as required

METHOD:

Make thick palm jaggery syrup. Once cooled, filter it and remove all impurities by using a stainer. Keep it aside.

Soak rice and dal for 2 hours. Grind it to a very smooth batter, no fermentation needed.


Finally add palm jaggery syrup with the batter without any lumps.


Heat appam tawa or non-stick pan. Pour a small ladle of batter in the centre, then hold its handle with the hands and rotate the pan. Hence the ladle will spread like a dosa.


Spread a spoon of oil over it. Cover with a lid. Cook in slow flame till done. The center part will be of and edges crispy. Just roll over and gently take out the appam from the pan. Delicious vella or karupatti appam is ready to serve. Enjoy!!!



Now it is award time.........

For March 2013, I was awarded by Divya Pramil as "SNC Queen" for HYDERABADI VEGETABLE DUM BIRYANI
For SNC February 2013, got the top number of votes for the favourite challenger / host and favourite challenge recipe GREEN PEAS KACHORI WITH SPICY DAM ALOO (KORAISHUTIR KOCHURI R ALOOR DAM). Thanks a ton my dear friends for choosing me and my recipe. I am honoured by you dearies, thanks again.
