Vellayappam ( Velleeppam)  is a fermented rice pancake. Vellayappam is one of the most popular breakfast items in Kerala and part of Sri Lanka.  It is one of the favorite breakfast of my family too and we have it for breakfast at least once a week.

It is very tasty to eat and easy to make. Vellayappam tastes best when served with vegetable stew, mutton/ beef stew, mutton curry or egg roast.
