TASTY RECEIPE SOWMYA, KEEP IT UP. POST RECEPIE FOR THIN RICE PATTARI. THANKS
Normally darkness happens when you make dough much in advance and keep it for a long time before you roll it out. This absorbs moisture and make it dark!!!
When I fried it got dark pretty fast. What do I do?Please help
Hey this is mridula from changanassery. Tried kuzhallappam dish and it was very good.Thanks again for this recipe.
thx for the recipe.Appams were very nice
rolling out method was tricky.Your suggestions were very helpful
I never tried making these appams as I thought it is vey complicated.But now I am so glad I did. They got over in no time.Thanks for the recipe
As the poplular talk, rolling out was difficult for me. It ended up breaking but I think it was because the dough was bit moist.I added some more rice flour and coated it.It came out well.
Thank You for this great recipe. My little one love this appam a lot. Now I can make it at home for him.Keep up this good work. I tried your ladoos and kesari. They were wonderful.
