some easy snacks! Vellai Appam


Rice Flour 1/2 cup, salt to taste

Urad dhal one cup,

Green chillies, 3 Nos. cut into small pieces

Ginger One inch cut into small pieces

Curry leaves, hing a pinch

oil for frying

soak the dhal for 2 hours and grind it fluffy.  Add the rice flour and salt.  Allow it to ferment. Then add green chillies, ginger, Curry leaves and hing. Heat the oil in a kadai and pour in a  small laddle full of vellai appam batter. Keep on medium flame. Turn over when it is still white in colour.  Fry till it   becomes golden brown.  Remove them and drain the excess oil by putting them in a colander. Repeat the process till all the batter is used.  This appam is delicious with or without chutneys. It will be more delicious with tomato chutney.
