Mor appam recipe

Mor appam recipe | Palakad style mor appam recipe with full video and step-by-step pictorial instructions. Mor appam is similar to kuzhi paniyaram but the batter is different from the Kuzhi paniyaram batter.

As the name suggests it is made using curd and seasoned with Traditional south Indian seasoning items like mustard seeds, urad dal, ginger, green chili, and asafoetida. This is a perfect breakfast | dinner recipe. Even you can serve this as a tiffin with evening coffee | tea.

I have heard about this mor appam but never tasted this anywhere. When I asked my friend she got this recipe from her sister Mrs. Usha. It turned out so well and definitely an interesting recipe to give it a try. It will be a good variation from our usual Idli | dosa.

The sourness of the curd and the spiciness from the green chili and red chili powder, give a nice taste to this mor appam. Since we are making this in Kuzhi paniyaram pan, this is a healthy breakfast | dinner option too.
