The Lacy Kerala Breakfast delicacy is perfect with many curries : Kadala (Black Chick Peas Curry), Chicken Curry or Stew, Egg Roast, Kerala style… I personally love it  with My Fathers Egg Roast 🙂 . He’s no longer here for me to ask for the recipe but  from my memories I shall replicate that recipe asap for you. (Egg Roast )

“I cherish all those memories as a child with my parents, great food always and the best support. Those years flew by —- way too fast.”

Appam is traditionally made using ground rice, but modern versions use rice flour too. I am also posting the recipe of Appam without yeast, for those who do not like the smell of fermented yeast. When ever the situation permits, I will always opt for the traditional method, which gives perfect results. The Video below shows you how to make Appam using ground rice.
