Standard 1 cup measures 240 ml


  • Rava / Sooji / Semolina – ½ cup
  • Maida – ¾ cup
  • Sugar – ½ cup
  • Water as needed
  • Salt a pinch
  • Cardamom /Elachi powder – ½ tsp
  • Oil for deep frying


  • In a mixing bowl take the Rava at first and then add in the Maida sprinkle little water and give a gentle mix the dough will resemble bread crumbs now.
  • Next to this add in the Sugar mix well with hands such that the sugar melts and dissolves completely so that the dough becomes little loose now. Now add in little water and bring it to the idli batter consistency. Make sure there is no lumps in the batter.
  • Now add in the Salt and Cardamom Powder and mix well to the batter.
  • Now the batter is ready. Allow it to rest for 20 mins. Heat a pan with oil for deep frying.
  • Take a small ladle full of batter and pour directly in the hot oil, don’t disturb it. The batter will puff up and raise up cook in a medium flame. Once the appam puffs and comes up in the flip gently and cook on both the sides in a medium flame till golden brown.
  • Drain from the oil and put it in paper towel to remove excess oil and serve hot.


· Drop in a small portion of the dough to check if the oil is hot enough for deep frying.
· Use a curved ladle to get better appam and use the same ladle for the entire batch of batter to get similar appam.
· Make One appam at a time otherwise the appam tends to stick with the other.
· You can use a small pan /Kadai so that less oil is required for deep frying · You can use cooking soda if you prefer but the appam comes out good even without that.
