I love Aapam and make it every sunday. The best combo for this is the Stew. Without this my Sunday is incomplete. What is your Sunday special??


Raw rice- 2 cups
Salt- to taste
Coconut- 1 small
Coconut Milk- 1 cup


  • Wash and soak rice for 4 hours. Grind using wet grinder to a very smooth batter.
  • Grind the coconut with 1/2 cup water to make a smooth paste.
  • Remove 2 tbsp of this batter, add ½ cup of water and boil till thick. Cool and add to the remaining batter. Add salt, coconut paste and allow to ferment overnight.
  • Use the extracted milk to thin down the batter. 
  • Heat a deep kadai, grease the kadai with oil.
  • Pour batter through the sides by swirling so that the aapam is thin at the ends and thick in the center.
  • Pour little oil in the sides to make it crisp.Cover and cook till done. Loosen the edges and lift the aapam. Serve with potato stew.
