How to make Surul Appam Recipe

  1. To begin making Surul Appam Recipe, get all the ingredients handy first. 

  2. To prepare the stuffing, take grated coconut, sugar (reserve about 1 tablespoon for later use) and Cardamom powder in a mixing bowl. Mix together with spoon and keep aside.

  3. Now, take all purpose flour in another mixing bowl. Add about a tablespoon of sugar and a pinch of salt to it. Mix together to make batter adding water little by little. The batter has to be thinner than dosa batter consistency.

  4. Heat a griddle, drizzle some ghee and pour a ladleful of batter on it. Spread into thin dosa and cook on medium heat for about 2-3 minutes.

  5. After the bottom side is done, flip to the other side and cook for a minute. Take care not to overcook and remove from pan before it starts turning brown on both sides.

  6. Repeat for the remaining batter. Now take the prepared pancake and place 2 tablespoon of coconut stuffing on one side. Spread all over the surface and roll from one end towards the other.

  7. Arrange the prepared and rolled pancakes in a plate and add some grated coconut on top to serve.

  8. Serve Surul Appam Recipe along with South Indian Filter Coffee Recipe and Mullu Murukku during evening.
