Making Appam



Here is Amma making Appam, the weather has been cooler here the last few days so the batter didn't ferment properly so even a great cook of over 40 years can sometimes struggle to get things perfect every time. This was so encouraging to me, as I have messed up so many Indian dishes, but now my chapatti for example is much better through trial and error.
As a good chef/cook the key is to never give up.....
My Mum in Law leaves thursday, I will miss her loads, its been a treat to have her around and learn so much about South Indian cooking, and if you know any Indians they love food LOL
