I would like to know your comments and suggestions also how it went for you.


1.The vellayappam batter should be thick like dosa batter(Add more coconut milk if the batter is too thick).Do not add extra water.Grind the wheat flour in coconut milk itself.
2.If you dodn’t like to add sugar,you can skip that part.
3.Don’t forget to have this vellyappam with milk and sugar πŸ™‚

      Thank u for trying my recipe πŸ™‚ . I took home made wheat flour.Ready made wheat flour may contains maida. May be because of that. If you are not getting the thick dosa batter consistency,add some more coconut milk little by little.Feel free to ask me queries.

      I will mention about this consistency issue in my recipe page.Thanks πŸ™‚
