There are two three vareity of Appams popular in Kerala ( South India ). Another two is Palappam and Vellayappam. Palappam is made by grinding raw rice with coconut milk, The batter is fermented using yeast. It is cooked at one side only by covering. A curved Appam pan is need to cook it. The tasty Palappam will have a lace boarder. 

Vellayappam is similar to Palappam, little difference is using grated coconut instead of coconut milk, batter have little thickness and look like Dosa. Vellappam cooked at both sides.   

In these days, getting pure Kallu / Toddy is little difficult because of Government wrong policies, they are not protecting tradational Toddy of Kerala ( South India ). In my child hood, one of my neighbour called Vellappettan made pure  toddy from Palms in our paddy fields. Then another person Mohanan came to make toddy from our palms but he stopped it 10 years back due to he did n't get good returns from it. Now days many Toddy makers leaving their tradational work.

TIPS: 

* If you add grated and grinded coconut  1/2 an hour before cooking it will taste much better. I add it half an hour before preparation.

* Always cover it with a lid and cook. Don't turn the Kallappam and cook other side.

* The batter of Kallappam is similar to the consistency of Iddli batter. 

* Don't add more sugar, It may cause the Kallappam to stick on the pan and effect the real taste.
