This is a new way for me- so I`m going to try it. Sure it will come out well with all the details. Thank you so much, I really like it when somebody speaks in detail.Also I had one doubt- why doesn everybody add salt later. Whenever I make appam I always add salt and sugar along with the ingredients and grind. I do add yeast in the end though- so far it has always come out well.


Recipe has given in very detail. Very pracical language. Thanks for good work.
