In Malabar we call this Vellayappam. In Travancore people call this pallappam.So stop the confusion. This appam looks like an egg, sunny side up with lace edges. So guys give it a rest and enjoy the receipe.

this recipe has come out well.actually it is a fusion of palappam and vellayappam.in travancore side palappam is made with coconut milk instead of grated coconut with crispy thin sides and vellayappam is made in this way but it will be made on a thawa like dosa by adding jeera and small onion.in malabaar side palappam is called vellayappam.any way try this. it is different.

This dough preparation is according to vallayappam. Vallayappam has to be cooked in dosa pan covered just one side. On the other hand palappam uses coconut milk and is to pe cooked in a palappachatti.

You can also add little jaggary (small lump) while grinding to give added taste and Appam looks great with lt brown at the bottom and white on top.
