Appam With Mutton Korma

Appam With Mutton Korma is my contribution to JFI for Rice. Sharmi from Neivedyam.... is the host for this months event.....All the best Sharmi!...

Appam is a very healthy dish....Basically it is a steamed dish, so not much oil is involved in this cooking...This is my family's favorite breakfast or dinner(yes we have it for both).....

Appam is a dish made mostly out of rice....They have very less Dal in them...So I thought of contributing it for JFI - Rice.....

Traditionally appam is served with coconut milk....But I like to spice it up by serving appam with mutton korma....They both pair amazing...

Ingredients :

For Appam

Parboiled Rice - 1 cup
Raw Rice - 1 cup
Urad dal - 2 tablespoon
Fenugreek - 1 teaspoon
Baking soda - 1/4 teaspoon
Salt - As required

Procedure :

1. Soak both the rice, urad dal along with fenugreek for 3 hours or more.

2. Now add enough water and grind the mixture into a fine liquid. It should be little watery than regular dosa batter.

3. Now add salt and ferment it for over night.

4. Add baking soda and mix well, now the batter is ready for making appams.

5. Appam can be made in appam pan or in a small size skillet.

6. Pour a ladle of appam batter and swirl it around the skillet and cover it with a lid and wait for 2 mins and remove form pan.

2. When the fennel seeds start to change the colour add the chopped onions and green chills and fry for 2 mins.

3. Then add cut tomato and saute for 1 min, Then add the mutton pieces, ginger garlic paste, turmeric powder, chili powder and mix well.

4. Add enough water and cook the mutton until done.

    Are you adding the baking soda in the morning just before making the appam.

  28. Hi Happy cook...
    Ya I add baking soda in the morning just before making the appam. Thank u...

  29. hi
    I tried this one but give me your comments based on the mistakes i did.
    1)The appams back has spots like we have in chapathi ,But the taste and crispiness was there.
    2)I felt the middle part was hard for me,I want it to be softer.What could I have posssible done wrong.
    3)My batter was little thick,But it swirled perfectly in the pan and got crispier oside and thick iside can I add water b4 making appams.

  30. My tummy's growling seeing that mutton korma!

  31. Nice combination of appam and mutton curry... i love it.. thanks a lot. For north indian food recipes check North Indian Recipes at
