During my recent visit to Bangalore, I got some new toys in my kitchen. LOL !! One of them is this Aappam Pan. This has this perfect curves at the centre and you have to tilt it with the batter rightfully to get the perfect aappam. To me, an Aappam is a mixture of Dosa and Idli, the centre is an idli whereas the sides are crisp pancakes just like dosa. One of my favorite south indian breakfast item.


  • Dosa Batter – 2 Cups
  • Coconut Powder – 1 tbsp
  • Baking soda  – 1/2 tsp
  • Salt – as needed
  • Sugar – a pinch
  • Oil for frying
  • Aappam Pan
Add water to the packaged dosa batter,  making it slightly thinner than dosa batter consistency. Add baking soda, coconut powder, salt and sugar to the fermented batter, and mix well. Keep it aside for 10 minutes.

Switch on the gas and keep the aappam pan in low heat. When the pan is slightly hot, sprinkle little oil to the pan.

Add a ladle full of batter and hold the handle of the pan and rotate the pan in such a way that the batter spreads all around in a circle. Because of the pan texture, remaining batter will come in the center.
Close the pan with the lid. Once the Aappam is cooked and the edges start turning brown, remove the Aaappam from the pan.
 Do not flip side.
Serve hot Aappam with your favorite stew.
