Appam is a type of thin pancake of South Indian origins and is typically identified by its lacy edges and fluffy centres.
You might have seen it in many an Indian food stall in hawker centres, but only one stall makes over 50 varieties of this breakfast staple.
Appam Aunty, a stall located in a Republic Polytechnic foodcourt, is the place to go to check out these treats. And yes, it is MUIS halal-certified.
Appam Aunty offers over 50 flavours of appam that come in more than just the standard toppings of orange sugar and grated coconut.
For instance, there’s the fruity series, where strawberries, power berries, and mango sticky rice come in appam form.
The adventurous might have no qualms about trying out the MSW durian or cempedak appam:
The following is a fusion of Indian and Malay food culture: the ondeh-ondeh appam!
Speaking of Indian-Malay fusion, there are also savoury appams featuring popular Malay dishes like satay goreng, chicken rendang, and even nasi lemak!
Otherwise, opt for the OG appam we are all familiar with, a plain appam with crispy edges and a spongy center made with fermented rice batter and coconut milk.
This simple but versatile appam can be paired with various dips, such as fish curry, tomato chutney, dal tadka and more.
Not just appam
Despite its name, Appam Aunty also serves other heartier dishes that would be perfect for lunch or dinner.
The nasi lemak sets look promising, and each one comes with Signature Ikan Bilis Sambal, cucumbers, boiled egg, and crunchy fried peanuts.
Alternatively, there are also garlic butter rice sets that pair well with the stall’s selection of curries.
