Why my Appam is not crispy?
Cooked rice and flour batter paste are the traditional methods used for fermenting the batter. Some people also use yeast which I do not approve as it not only gives the yeasty taste and smell to it but also makes them too soft and non crispy. Even the rice you use determines the texture of the Appam.
Why does my Appam stick to the pan?
*It is a good idea to grease the appachatti or the appam pan with sesame or til oil one day before make appams. Also, sufficiently heat the pan before pouring in the batter. This helps the batter to not stick to the pan and appams come out clean. *There is no need to flip the appam to cook the other side.
