How To Make Kerala Vellayappam

Vellayappam or kallappam is a traditional breakfast of keralites. In ancient times people were making appam with palm toddy(panankallu) instead of yeast. Because of unavailability of that , we are using yeast or sweet coconut water. Even toddy from coconut tree also good. In different areas vellayappam is different. Some are using palappam batter for this,some add urid dhal. But this is special kottayam style vellayappam. This will go great with stew,chicken curry,kadala curry or beef curry.
