Appam is a south Indian tiffin snack and there is a special mould which is called Appam mould for making it. The best part about this mould it that you can make fritters, cutlets, koftas or tikki in this with very less oil. You can also make it with no oil. So you can have some nice food which is healthy and delicious.

You get two options of Appam Moulds. One is non-stick and another one is metal one. I prefer the non-stick ones because in that batter will not stick. It comes with a lid and a wooden stick. You can put stick in it which has a pointy edge like a tooth pic and can turn it. You have to turn it and put it back so that it can be cooked from both the sides.
