Instructions Grind all these together by adding water. Pour half of the dough to a vessel and warm the remaining half in a pan Keep stirring while warming as the dough gets thick very quickly Once the dough thickens, switch off the fire, grind the warmed portion again by adding little water to make a smooth form. Mix this along with the first half kept aside Keep it overnight, and thus the dough is ready for palappam...make the consistency of the dough accordingly by adding water. For vellayappam, i suggest not to go for the warming process , coz it makes the appam too soft. So you can just grind the above ingredients and keep it overnight as such.

Palapppam, as its name indicates you must add “coconut milk” which is called “Thenga pal”& it need “appa chatty” for its proper shape and texture. In vellayam there is no coconut milk as an ingredient but grinded coconut paste is added to the batter.

Reply dhanya June 18, 2007 - 12:00 amthnaks suja for the information, but i hope everyone knows that we make palappam in appachatti and vellayappam on a thava, and i find no taste difference in using the same dough for both appams by changing the consistency of the dough. the problem with coconut milk is if it`s not freshly taken, the taste won`t be much good (if u use tinned or coconut milk powder) , as most don`t get time to take coconut milk freshly , i feel grinding coconut with rice is always better that using any other substitution for coconut milk thanks Reply Diana June 22, 2007 - 12:00 amHey this recipie is really good .I tried making palappam many times but it was not as perfect as this one thank you very much for this recipie. a simple tip along with this if u add baking soda not baking powder just before u make the appam it becomes mor nice. Reply Raji October 12, 2010 - 1:54 am I tried this recipe…excellent one..the appams came out well..they were soft, except that the sweetness was a bit less…thanks for a palappam recipe for which i dont have to extract the coconut milk..for me taking coconut milk was the most tedious of all.. Reply preetha June 25, 2010 - 3:23 amExcellent one. It came out very well. Thank you so much for this recipe……..Dhanya. Reply Sukutty January 31, 2009 - 9:53 am Thank You Dhanya. I agree to what is said in your comment that there is no subsititue for adding real coconut to the dough than adding store bought coconut powder or milk. I have tried this many times and it came out so soft and wonderful! Thanks a bunch. Reply sue June 16, 2009 - 7:43 pm Dear Dhanya,Please give more details. does the rice have to be soaked.
