Rice powder : 3 cups / 1/2 kilo (sift through a sieve and use only the finest flour)

Sugar : 1 cup

Thick Coconut Milk : 2 cup

Eggs : 2

Black Sesame Seeds /Ellu : 2 tsp

Cumin seeds /Jeerakam : 1 tsp

Salt : a pinch, just to adjust the taste

Oil for deep frying


1. Take the flour in a vessel and slowly add coconut milk and make a semi thick batter. (Note : The batter should be thicker than the dosa batter but dip able and pourable.)

2. Beat the eggs and add the eggs, sesame seeds, cumin seeds, salt, and mix well.

3. Add sugar a little at a time, mixing it in well between each addition, mix well and set it aside for 20-30 minutes.

4. Heat oil in a pan /kadhai. Place an achappam mould in the oil. (Note : The mould must be dipped in hot oil before immersing in the batter. Else, the achappam may not come out of the mould.)

5. When mould is hot remove it from oil and dip into batter. Ensure that batter covers only 3/4 of the mould.  Don’t dip it completely.

6. Take the mould from the batter and dip into hot oil. When the batter is cooked it will detach itself from the mould and fall into the oil or just shake it a little bit or use a fork. (Note : Don’t shake too vigorously then it may break or they may not hold their shape.The key is the mold should be hot and with the oil.)

7. Then dip the mold again into the oil, and into the batter and make the rest of the achappams.

8. Turn it over so that all the sides are cooked. When achappam is browned evenly remove from oil. Allow them to drain well on paper towels.

9. Yummy achappam are ready!! After the achappam cools down, store in an air-tight container. Serve and Enjoy!!
