  • Grind these pieces well along with some water and make a batter as we prepare for Appam/Dosa batter.

  • Boil this mix in medium flame and stir it continuously till the mix turns into thick form. Then add required quantity of Red Chilli/Pepper granules and stir it further. Put off the stove.
  • Dry the batter in direct sun rays for about 6 – 10 hours depending on the heat of sun's rays. For this purpose use a thick and good quality plastic sheet, apply very little oil over the sheet and then pour the batter by using a small ladle. Spread the mixture into a round shape and dry it properly as shown in the image.
  • When pappadam is dried properly, take them from the direct sun's rays and keep in a normal place for some time. Maracheeni Pappadam is ready.
