Rice Appalam


1) 2 cups of rice, grounded finely.
2) 1/4 cup Sago, grounded finely.
3) 1/4 tsp asafoetida, grounded.
4) 7-8 green chillies, grounded.
5) Salt (as needed).
6) 3 tsp ghee (clarified butter).

Cooking Instructions:

1) Mix grounded rice and sago.
2) Mix grounded green chillies, salt and asafoetida. Add the grounded paste to 2 cups of water. Boil this mixture.
3) Add the ground rice flour to this and cook for a minute or two. Stir the mixture well.
4) Add in 2½ tsp ghee.
5) Next, knead the flour well using your hands. Continue to knead until the flour becomes very soft.
6) Tear pieces of this dough to make even sized balls.
7) Moisten your hand with ghee. Knead each of the balls well until they become very soft.
8) Roll each of the softened dough balls with a roller to make thin round flattened shapes, as in poori. Scatter a pinch of dry flour on the shapes from time to time, while you flatten them. This will help you achieve the round shape easily.
9) When you have finished, spread each of the balls on a sheet of paper and give some time to dry.
