2 cups of white rice
Half a coconut
1 table spoon of yeast
2 table spoon of partially ground, cooked rice
Soak the washed rice for 3 to 4 hours.Wash and drain. Grind the soaked rice in a blender with just enough water so that the ground material will be thick. In the early stages of grinding take out about two table spoon of the partially ground rice and keep it apart for cooking and later mixing.(This will be called KURUKKU).
Mix separately 1 teaspoonful of yeast , quarter cup of luke warm water and 1 tablespoon of sugar and allow the mixture to rise. Grind the coconut to a milky emulsion. Mix your ground rice, ‘Kurukku'(cook the partially ground rice saved earlier like a thick porridge) the yeast mixture and ground coconut Allow the mixture to ferment for about 6 hours. Add sugar and salt as your taste dictates.You can add a little coconut milk to adjust the consistency.(You can add one beaten up egg at this stage if you fear appams sticking to the pan.- Alternately you can wrap a half fried egg in cloth and use it to rub the frying area of your pan.) Now put the mixture in a warm oven for 2 hours just before you make the Appams
After it rises DO NOT STIR.
Use a cast iron pan and use the same technique that one uses for pancakes.

Outback Steakhouse Alice Springs Chicken

January 5, 2012 1 comment

Honey Mustard Marinade:
1/2 cup honey
1 1/2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 cups sliced mushrooms (10−12 mushrooms)
2 tablespoons butter
salt and pepper
8 slices bacon, cooked
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh parsley
Using an electric mixer, combine mustard, honey, 1 1/2 teaspoons oil and lemon juice in small bowl. Whip mixture for about 30 seconds. Pour about 2/3 of marinade over the chicken breasts and marinate them (covered) in the refrigerator, for about 2 hours.
Chill remaining marinade until later. After the chicken has marinated, preheat oven to 375 F and heat up an ovenproof frying pan (large enough to hold all four breasts) with 1teaspoon of oil over medium heat. If you dont have an ovenproof skillet, transfer the chicken to a baking dish for the baking. Sear chicken in pan for 3−4 minutes per side or until golden brown. Remove the pan from heat, but keep the chicken in the pan. As the chicken is cooking, saute the sliced mushrooms in butter in a small frying pan. Brush each seared chicken breast with a little of the reserved honey mustard marinade (not the portion the chicken marinated in), being sure to save a little extra to serveas a side. Season chicken with salt, pepper, and a dash of paprika. Stack two pieces of cooked bacon, crosswise, on each chicken breast. Spoon the sauteed mushrooms on the bacon, being sure to coat each breast evenly. Spread 1/4 cup Monterey Jack cheese onto each breast, followed by 1/4 cup of Cheddar. Bake the pan of chicken for 7−10 minutes or until the cheese is thoroughly melted and starting to bubble. Sprinkle each chicken breast with 1/2 teaspoon parsley before serving. Place extra marinade in small bowl to serve on the side.
