Drain and grind to a smooth paste together with coconut, garlic, cumin seeds and salt, adding very little water

Do not allow this mix to ferment

Make small balls of the dough and flatten each ball on a piece of plantain leaf with your finger tips. Dip fingers in water in between

Fold and steam the appams in an appanchembu (steamer) or in a pressure cooker without putting the weight on the lid, with enough water, for about 30 minutes or until the appams are cooked thoroughly
