The challenge of this month is hosted by Mary from the blog Mary Culinairy. She loves curry and has collected a few great recipes for us as a challenge, which included appams. I didn’t had a clue what appams were before, but appams are a sort of pancakes made of rice.
And they tasted really good!! This certainly is a recipe which I’m going to make many times in the future.
I’ve chosen for the version with meat and vegetables, but there was also a fish challenge, which I’m soon going to try out as well.
The childeren loved the appams and were eating them well passed dinnertime. The small leftover (no appams, because they were all gone) I’ve had for lunch the other day, together with my parents who came to visit. They also had clean plates afterwards.
Every time the challenge is to cook it from scratch and sometimes the recipes take hours of intensive cooking. But not in this case. You’ve to keep in mind that you make the batter for the appams a day ahead, but that’s all.
And don’t forget the vegetable plate, it was such a great addition to the curry. It’s possible to eat it without but in my opinion it isn’t that complete.
Have a nice dinner and a lot of thanks to Mary: it was a great challenge and I’ve never had such a great curry.
