Hi all, today am here with one of the most popular breakfast recipe of South Indian cuisine. Palappam or Appam is a healthy and soft, fluffy pancake with crispy lace edges that tastes divine with a combo of vegetable or non-veg curries. The preparation is so simple and can be made so easily at home. The main ingredients needed are just rice or rice flour and coconut milk and a appam pan to prepare.
