Pesaha Appom / Indri appom

Beautiful it is to see the trees in white flower gowns, buds of colorful flowers everywhere a sight spreading good hope, happiness and laughter, however the World is right now in a standstill ironically this is caused by something a human eye cannot even see. Nature is fighting back and it is alarming to see how this has stumbled powerful leaders and Nations. 

All we can do to save the world is to be at home. 
I am spending time with my kids, I feel they are enjoying too everything is good while staying home but anxiety peaks at times when I read the news and different articles. We have nothing much to do other than to wait and see how this goes if Man will ultimately conquer his unseen enemy.
I have some time for everything now, I cook, clean , play with my kids, read and do all household chores without stress and I felt i should update my blog too after a long break. 

Today being Maundy Thursday, Pesaha Appom and Pesaha Paal are the stars.
Pesaha Appom is a traditionally made unleavened bread made only once in a year on this day in Christian houses in Kerala. 


1 cup White rice ( I used Sona Masoori rice)
2 -3 tbsp Urad Daal
Coconut grated - 1 cup (may use more)
5 to 7 No's Small Onion
Cumin seeds / Jeeragam - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste


  • Clean and Soak Urad dal and Rice separate in water for at least an hour 
  • Grind Urad dal first, pour this to a bowl.Use less water to bring this to a paste. 
  • Grind Rice with little water ( to get consistency of Appom batter)   Pour this to the ground Urad dal.Use 3/4 cup to 1 cup of water to grind) 
  • Coarsely grind Coconut, Small onion and cumin seeds together -  do not grind coconut to a smooth past. Mix this to the above mixture.Add enough salt and keep aside for an hour. 

  • Pour the batter to a greased plate and steam until done (20 - 30 minutes in medium to low heat) 

Waking up to see this beauty is a blessing I am thankful for :) 
though the flowers wouldn't stay for long and may shred soon , the crisis now will also pass. 

Let this time bring a lovely change to the Human kind when each of us would think about  other living beings here and make our Earth even more beautiful for the generations to come.
Happy Easter in advance
