Madurai Special Karupatti Appam | Palm Jaggery Crepes | Karupatti Dosai | Traditional Recipe From Tamil Nadu

Karupatti Appam

Hi Supermoms,

Karupatti is a type of jaggery that is obtained from Palm trees. It is a healthy sugar full of nutrition. Rich in iron and calcium and so many other health benefits, it is wise to use Karupatti instead of refined sugar . It is harder in texture and darker in colour when compared to jaggery. But you can powder them , filter them and use in all your sweet dishes. Karupatti is good for digestion too.

Today's recipe is a traditional one that is quite popular in Madurai District of Tamil Nadu. It is called 'Karupatti Appam'. You can use the Appachatti to make this sweet appam. If you do not have the appachatti, make them as regular dosai and they taste equally yummy. Fresh homemade butter is a great accompaniment to this appam. 

Madurai Special Karupatti Appam:

Preparation time : 8-12 hours ( fermentation)
Cooking time : 20 minutes
Serves : 10
1 cup = 250 ml cup 

Ingredients :

4 cups boiled rice ( regular boiled rice , not idli rice)
1 cup urad dal/ split and husked black gram
1 cup karupatti/palm jaggery ( powdered)
1/2 cup fresh coconut ( grated)
2 cardamoms ( powdered)
oil ( to grease)
salt ( to taste)

Method :

1. Wash and soak rice and urad dal separately for 4 hours.
2. Grind them to a smooth batter and then mix them well along with salt .
3. Allow the batter to ferment for 6-8 hours or over night.

5. Filter and impurities and allow it to cool completely.

Chef tip : You can also grind the coconut .

9. Close and cook for 2-3 minutes.
