Vellappam and Stew are a family favourite. Vellappam is traditionally made with yeast and fermented coconut water. I picked up this recipe from my sister in law Jayasree Varma Nayak wherein she used beaten rice as a substitute for yeast. It tastes simply divine!!!
- 2 glasses raw rice ( I used the normal kolam rice)
- 1 glass poha/beaten rice
- 1/4 tsp soda bicarb
Wash and soak the rice for five hours. Grind to a smooth batter with Poha. Add salt and the soda bi carb and thin down to a batter slightly thicker than Neer dosa batter. Allow to ferment for 10-12 hours. Make appam.
The recipe for Stew can be found under the catagory of ” Coconut based Preparations” of this website.
