Mix all the above ingredients with Idli batter and keep aside for 10 minutes.
Heat a Paniyaram Pan. Drop with little oil (1-2 drops) in each hole and put 1 tsp batter in each hole.
Cover the lid and keep the flame in low-medium. After 2-3 minutes turn the other side of the Appam using a spoon or wooden skewer. Sprinkle few drops of oil and again cook for 1-2 minutes. Turn once or twice for uniform cooking. Switch off the flame and remove from the Appam Patra and Serve with any chutney or Sambar or any gravy.
