Appam is a Kerala dish made with fermented rice batter and served along with sweetened coconut milk or stew. It is prepared in an appa kal or appa chetti which is a bowl shaped. So when you make appam the center is a little thick and the edges are thin.
Traditionally toddy or fermented coconut water was used to ferment the appam batter. But you can ferment the batter using yeast as well. Fermentation is the key to make soft spongy appams.
