Paalappam Recipe

Paalappam, also known as Kerala-style rice pancakes, is a popular breakfast dish in South India. These soft and fluffy pancakes are made from fermented rice batter and coconut milk. They have a slightly sweet and tangy flavor, making them perfect to pair with spicy curries or coconut chutney. Paalappam is traditionally cooked in a special pan called 'appachatti' to achieve its unique shape and texture.
