It’s usually served with kadala curry (black chickpeas/kala chana) but can also be relished with ripe bananas and grated coconut.
Appam with Stew –
Appam is a delicious rice pancake with soft and thick center and a paper thin outside. You can pair this with almost anything and it will still steal the spotlight. Vegetable stew or lamb stew would be the perfect pairs though.

It’s amazing to see how simple ingredients come together to make a lovely dish. The traditional prawn curry is sprinkled with chilli, salt, pepper and then dipped in a whole lot of coconut milk, jaggery and finally finished with curry leaves.
