UPPAPPAM/ VELLAI APPAM

   Uppappam is a deep fried snack and this my mom makes on diwali morning along with breakfast. In my in – laws place nobody knows about this and after 11 years of our marriage this is the first time i made at my home and my hubby and kids liked this very much.

    Sometimes my mom makes with left over idli batter and that will absorb a lot of oil.

Here comes the recipe of  Uppappam:

UPPAPPAM

INGREDIENTS:

RAW RICE 1 CUP
URAD DAL 1/2 CUP
GINGER A SMALL PIECE
CUMIN SEEDS 1/4 TSP
PEPPER 1/4 TSP
GREEN CHILLI 1 NO
SALT AS NEEDED
CURRY LEAVES FEW
ASAFADITA A PINCH
YOGURT 2 TBLSP
OIL FOR DEEP FRYING

VELLAI APPAM

METHOD:

  • Soak rice and urad dal  separately for 2 hours .
  • Grind the urad dal into a very smooth paste without adding much water(as we do for urad dal vadai)
  • Grind the rice and it should be little coarse.(add very little water to this while grinding)
  • Mix the ground rice and urad dal nicely with using your hands.

  • Add the yogurt to the batter and mix nicely.
  • Allow the batter to sit for half an hour.
  • Heat the oil in a kadai.
  • When it becomes hot, keep the flame in medium.
  • With  the help of a spoon(i used the ice cream scoop) pour the batter to the oil.
  • Cook till it turns golden brown.
  • Drain excess oil in a kitchen tissue.

NOTE:

Do not add too much water while grinding and if the batter becomes watery it will absorb more oil.

If the yogurt is sour you can start frying in the oil . No need to ferment.
