  • ¾ cup Wheat flour/ Atta
  • ¼ cup Semolina flour/ fine sooji
  • 2 tbsps Rice flour
  • ½ cup Yogurt*
  • ½ tsp Baking soda
  • 2 tsp Oil and more for the pan
  • ½ tsp Mustard seeds
  • ½ tsp Cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp Urad dal
  • A pinch Asafoetida/ Hing
  • 2 ~ 3 Green Chilies, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Ginger, finely grated
  • 6 ~ 8 Curry leaves
  • 1 Small Onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsps Cilantro, finely chopped
  • To taste Salt


  • In a bowl, combine wheat flour, sooji, rice flour and salt. Mix well.
  • Next add the yogurt and enough water to make a thick batter. Make sure to whisk well to make sure that there are no lumps in the batter.
  • In a small pan, heat oil and add urad dal, mustard seeds and cumin seeds. Once the seeds start to splutter, add hing, curry leaves, ginger and onions. Cook till the onions turn translucent. Season with salt. Do not add too much because the batter already has salt in it.
  • Add the onion mixture to wheat batter along with cilantro and mix well.
  • Heat the appam pan, add about ½tsp oil in each hole. Add about 1~2tbsp of the batter, cover the pan and cook the paniyarams until golden brown. Gently flip and cook until golden on the second side.
  • Remove and serve with your favorite chutney.


  • Use slightly sour yogurt for the best results.
  • Finely chopped/ grated vegetables (cabbage, carrot, green beans, green peas, corn etc) can be added to the batter. If you are concerned about adding raw veggies, then saute them with the onions until crisp tender. Cool slightly before adding to the batter.
  • These are best to eat hot, but leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Microwave them until heated through before serving.
