Sweet Appams made With Diet 7-UP

2 bottles Diet 7-UP
4 cups of raw rice
2 cups of cooked rice
2 cups of coconut milk powder
1 ½ cup water
6 tbsp sugar
½ tsp yeast
Salt as per taste

Wash and soak raw rice for 3 hours then grind the soaked rice, cooked rice, 6 tbsp sugar, coconut milk powder, salt as per taste with 2 bottles of 7-UP. Grind it to a fine paste. Add 1 ½ cup of water to adjust the consistency of the batter. Check and adjust the salt if required.

Now take 4 tbsp of Luke warm water add ½ tsp yeast and wait till it rises and frothy. Once the yeast is frothy mix it into the batter and let the batter ferment for 8 hours or overnight

Once the batter is fermented mix it once. Take a deep round curved frying pan, grease it with oil and pour 1 big serving spoon in the pan and give one swing to coat the pan around. Now add another ½ serving so the batter remains in the centre. Cover the pan and let it fry on slow fire until the sides fry like a golden lace. Enjoy it with any chutney or you may relish it with chicken curry in coconut milk.
