This is a signature dish of my Salem home......I don't know whether any household makes this.....This  is so special to me...and for this Karthigai Deepam Neivedhyam, this is one among them.

Rice flour - 1 1/2 cups
All purpose flour / maida - 1
Wheat flour - 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Baking powder - a very small pinch
Coriander leaves - chopped - 1/2 cup

Grind and add
Grated coconut - 3 tsps
A small piece ginger
Green chillies - 3
Hing powder - 1/2 tsp

Recipe Cuisine: South Indian;Category: Neivedhyams; snacks
Prep time: 10 mts; Cooking time: roughly 30 mts

Yields 20 appams

The ground ingredients and coriander leaves added

                  Batter mixed with water. Consistency should be a little thinner than dosa batter

Heat oil in the muffin pan, pour batter, keep the flames on the lowest and cook well. 

Appams turned.

Added some chilli powder to this batch, since they were looking too white in colour.

Happy Karthigai to you all!! Vella appams and Uppu appams ready!!!

*Though for the sweet and savory appams, the ingredient measurement is the same, due to addition of jaggery and banana, sweet appams recipe yields 25, whereas, this yields only 20.
*If you can manage a slightly high spice level, you can add 1 tsp chilli powder to the batter before itself.
