  1. This is so similar to vibibi that the coastal people make here. They make it like a pancake. To get the flower shape do you use a small kadai to make the palappam?

  2. Love the flower shape with appams.Last week I was so tempted by the chicken and potato curry you had posted Had not made it since long thank you for reminding :)) We really enjoyed it with appam.
