Apams or apom comes in white, pink or light brown but I like them pink. They are normally served with grated coconut and make good breakfast item because they are light and taste somewhat like bread.
4 ½ cups rice flour
1 ½ cups sugar
4 cups water
2 cups cold rice
2 packets Eno (Plain-blue packet)
3-4 pcs yeast (can buy them at the wet market – normally sold 2 pcs in a packet)
Crush yeast and mix with cold rice and keep them in a covered container for about a day or two until they are well fermented.
Mix the rice flour with sugar and water in a big bowl, preferably blend them to a smooth paste. Put aside for 6 hours. Add Eno to the mixture and stir a while.
Prepare steamer. Place apam bowls on steamer plate and pour mixture into the bowls filling about ¾ of the bowls. Close steamer and steam until apam is cooked.
