Beat yoghurt with 1/3 cup water for 2-3 minutes. See to it that there are no lumps remaining.

All the three batters should be of the same consistency.

Step 9

Lightly oil the appam pan with cooking oil or olive oil. Add mustard seeds to the oil.

Step 10

Pour the batter carefully into the pan; sprinkle some oil over it and let it cook for 5 minutes on low to medium heat.

Step 11

Flip them over and let the other side cook.

Step 12

Remove them when they are cooked and they are ready to be served.

Enjoy them with chutney or hot sambar!
