  1. Hi.. thank you for the wonderful recipe. Can you also share the recipe of red sugar that goes with appams? When we were in Singapore they used to serve appams with coconut milk and this red sugar. If you could help my kids would be happy as they love this combo!






      1. If you want to store then you can buy readymade coconut cream (milk). The shelf life is pretty good

  2. It was such a pain getting coconut milk from the market. I didn’t know how simple it is to make at home. Thanks Suguna. Even the Appam recipe without yeast is very cool. I will try it here at ( Hyderabad ) for my grandchildren. I am a Grand Pa with cooking as a hobby for my family. I picked it up from Bloggers like you while staying at Bangalore.
