    Hi, I used to bake them in the oven, since my family loves the baked version for baking. You need little more water as in a cake batter. Add lots of oil in the bottom and top, cook till it is well done and outsides are crunchy. Do not put fried onions in the top or bottom, since it can get burned in baking. Cut when warm, if you want in shapes. I make this in bulk for our church in mondi-thursday and everybody loves it.

    thanks for the recipe of the sauce.... back in india we call this pesaha paal. I love this.... brings back old memories. I think this paal is made in only some parts of kerala. Most people make only the appam. Thanks again.

    I was also searching for a recipe for Pesaha Appam. Thanks a lot for posting this recipe. I am going to try it tomorrow. My mother used to blend the appam flour with vellulli instead of kunjulli. I think this will give a different flavor.

    usually I dont soak the Urad dal.I dry roast this in low flame and grind it not very fine.Then I mix it with the coarsely grind rice.Then I will fry the kunjulli,curry leaves in oil and then mix it with the flour. Garlic-jeera paste also enhances the flavour.

    At my home we do not use urad in this recipe For those in US Idly rice is a good option to soak and grind. Baking gives a real good taste and serve with Rava kachi.
