The recipe is good and your suggestion is the mould made of beel is the best to make achappams. What is the meaning of beel. Please clarify the same

Absolutely had fun making this recipe.my husband loved it. the recipes is fab by itself, but i find that adding maida gives it a "hotel"/"bakery" taste. juat adding the appropriate rice flour in place gives it the pure naadan taste...which i remember from my grandmas homemade achapams.also adding cumin seed(maybe u could powder them ,if u dont like the bits) and most importantly Black sesame seeds improves the taste drastically.

Thanks Jessy for this excellent recipe. i am so inspired by it that i shall try it tonight itself. I have a word to tell Ms. Mary, "Ur problem is lack of commonsense. I am sorry to say that bluntly. I dont think anyone else can help you other than yourself."

Thanks for posting this recipe. For the first time, I had made Achappam and it came out very good. But I had also added cardamon powder, it will taste very good. Happy Onam !

I tried to make Achappam today. The batter looks good, but it is not getting loose from the Achu as it should be. I have a brand new achu, do you think it is the reason? If yes how can I fix that? I don`t want to throw away the batter, please help

The recipe was very good, easy to follow. One thing I would suggest is using more rice flour if you want a more crunchy, thicker achapam. Otherwise, a great recipe, thanks so much! By the way, does anyone know if they make non-stick acha`s now? Because I had a hard time getting the achapam off of the acha! Thanks again!

Hi pals....What Mary Said Was not so humiliating & hurting.Well she was just clarifying her doubt. She shouldnt have said that in the first place. Still we shouldnt accuse her like that. Fe wof them wrote real hurting. Infact the Achappams came out so well & it was so yummy that my fiancee liked it a lot . keep up & Do send in many more ..

This is for Mary. Instead of thanking Jessy for posting such a lovely recipe, it was very rude of you to respond in that manner. You want her recipe, but cannot acknowledge her measurements. If you don`t understand what she meant, who is stopping you? Go ahead and try other recipes.People like you who knows only criticize others will never be able to acknowledge the good deeds others do.

Very good recipe. Came out quite well when I tried out. Jessy, don`t get disappointed by comments from people like Mary as she fails to understand that you have all your measurements referring to "a" glass and hence the size of the glass is immaterial. Also, a glass in a common persons` term will not vary much in capacity. Please continue to submit such good recipes.

It would be a great help if recipes were written using standard measurements. There are measuring cups and measuring spoons available in the market very easily. If contributors took a little extra trouble and gave precise measurements people would be actually able to cook these dishes. How much does one glass mean? Everybody has different glasses at home. Its a pretty site but you guys need to put in some prescise usuable content.

LeenaI agree,there are small and big glasses, which one do i use, What is (no) numbers?. I remember this snack from my childhood but my mom lives in india, so i have to wait til i see her to eat this.
