Instant Rava Appam | Sooji Appam


Instant Rava Appam or Sooji Appam is a soft, spongy and delicious breakfast that can be prepared in just 15 minutes. This is a scrumptious South Indian breakfast or snack dish relished with vegetarian or non vegetarian dishes of your choice. This instant breakfast dish uses just 6 pantry friendly ingredients and requires no fermentation which is again a good news. So no need to worry about the fermentation when living in cold countries. Moreover no soaking and grinding required that is again a blessing. This recipe solves all those problems as it can be made instantly. The fermentation is hastened by adding dry yeast. Instant Rava Appam is quite popular across India and working mothers find this quite an advantage. The appam is soft with a good texture. I basically love appam dishes but I find the grinding process quite a burden. Now I am happy, I can relish Sooji Appam with my favorite curry dishes.

A few tips and suggestions for a soft Instant Rava Appam. It is better to use the coarse Bombay rava and avoid other variations of semolina available in stores. Secondly the batter should be thin and watery compared to the traditional ones. Make appams only after the batter has risen well. The batter has to slowly flow and spread itself after you have poured on a hot pan. Do not spread on your own. You will find lot of pores forming on the Sooji Appam. Cook in low heat in an Appam Chatti available in all stores. Instant Rava Appam is loved by all age groups and kids love it with banana jam. This is a wholesome and healthy dish that you can serve for your family and even unexpected guests. You can discover a well detailed recipe here that can be easily prepared at home.
