Leave it to ferment for 8 hours.
While making appam , add bicarbonate of soda and thick coconut milk. Mix well.
Heat the appam kadai and  pour  enough batter .  Rotate the pan  so the batter spreads out well.   Close the pan with the lid and cook on medium fire for 3 to 4 minutes.
Great  breakfast for all age groups.

Jaleela’s Tips

( If appam does not come out properly,  take one medium onion and cut into half.   Poke a fork into the onion.   Dip the onion in the oil and spread it on  the pan (kadai ) before pouring the batter again)
