Being a Mallu, quite often my hubby becomes nostalgic about Kerala home-made food and sometimes I have to bow down to his pressure and cook his favourites. And today, it was the turn of Appam to become a victim at my hands and the ready help came from Vij to help me out to prepare it. Though I was bit worried about the taste, it came well and my hubby was very happy to eat it with brinjal curry.
Here’s the recipe of Appam…
