Appam is a South Indian pancake made with fermented rice batter and coconut milk that is popular in Kerala, Sri Lanka, and Tamil Nadu. Breakfast and dinner are the most popular times to eat it. Bowl-shaped thin pancakes made from fermented rice flour are known as plain appam or Vella appam. The tiny appachatti in which they are cooked gives them their form. They have a mild flavour and are usually eaten with a spicy condiment or curry. The batter for these hoppers is made with flour, yeast, salt, and a little sugar. After the mixture has stood for a couple of hours, it can be fried in the appachatti with a little oil.
