What sounds more middle-Keralite than having a fluffy white appam with golden laced edges for breakfast? The answer could be 'nothing'.
When it comes to appam, the right amount of fermentation is important to ensure the right texture while cooking. Keeping the batter overnight to ensure it has risen is often the way to go. But what if you crave appam on a fine morning and you have no pre-made batter? Well, here is an option.
