Hi. Thank you so much for this gab recipe. Ever since i got married I`ve been trying to make appam. But they were total disasters. Finally i chanced upon this recipe and now my appams are the talk of the town. My husband`s friends come just to taste it and I owe it all to your Raji. Thank you so much!!

Few notes based on the way it is made in my part of Kerala:
1. For cooked rice, we use left over cooked parboiled rice. You can tell parboiled rice by either the marking on the package or by how tough it is to break the grain into two. They also take longer to cook (about 45 minutes unless you use a pressure cooker).
2. For the non cooked rice ingredient, we use basmati rice and soak it for a few hours before grinding it. We also use pachari for this sometimes.
3. You add the milk at the time of cooking.
4. The fermentation takes about 6-10 hours. If it hasn`t risen yet and is all bubbly, it is not ready.

Thanks a lot for the great comments. I typically use cooked long grain white rice(the kind we get in the grocery stores in the U.S)to make the batter. You can also use cooked Ponni rice for this.

cooked rice used here is rice that has either been boiled or steamed. Boiled preferably. Long grain rice is not an absolute necessary – comes out just as good with any other rice

I just wanted to know whether we have to soak the long grain rice for a while before grinding or it is not necessary?
