F2F Appam Batter Recipes

Steamed Veggie Appams by Sweta Biswal


Giving a healthy makeover to the traditional Appam and Stew combo, I have added the sauteed vegetables to the appam batter and steamed it ! Uses less oil and is lower on calories . Plus saves cooking time and effort !

Ingredients & Quantity
  • 1 1/2 cup appam batter
  • 1 cup mixed vegetables cut into small pieces ( broccoli, carrot, beans )
  • 1 sprig curry leaves
  • 1 small onion
  • 1/3 inch ginger (grated)
  • 2 garlic cloves (grated)
  • 1 chopped green chili (optional)
  • 2-3 tbsp thick coconut milk
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper powder
  • 1 tsp canola oil
    How to cook?
    1. Heat the oil in a wok. Add the chopped onions, green chili, ginger and garlic. Saute till raw smell goes off.
    2. Add the chopped vegetables along with the curry leaves. Sprinkle a little salt and cook till half done. Add the white pepper powder and mix. Remove and keep aside.
    3. Prepare the appam batter by adding salt, sugar and the coconut milk.
    4. Put water in the steamer and get it to a boil.
