Close to a century old and right in the middle of Thrissur town, Velleppanghadi as its popularly known has been the major supplier of Vella Appams all throughout the town. Located behind Puthenpalli at Erinjeri Anghadi, Thrissur, this place is basically a set of household chefs who prepare homemade Vella Appams, a local delicacy of Kerala, infront of their homes and sells to the customers as per prior order.
When You turn to this quite street behind Puthenpalli at Erinjeri Anghadi, easily accessible from the city yet looks miles away from the city with its small houses and quite look, you can see almost every houses has that small make shift ovens infront of them with people preparing something.
Vellappanghadi as this place is popularly known in Thrissur, has been around at this exact street for almost a century now and generations who prepared this soft fluffy Kerala delight for Thrissur. The appams are made in multiple earthen ovens heated by burned coconut shells. They make each appam separately on steel plates where they pour batter on to hot plates and covering it with lid for some time. These handmade Vella appams became a synonym for softness and taste among their patrons.
Appam which has a slight golden rim around the edges tastes unlike any other Vella Appams you have ever tasted with its extreme softness and sweet taste. Restaurants and caterers place bulk order for this dish here but you can also see retail customers who come to buy small quantities of Appams too. As they sell Appams without any middle man directly to their customers, one appam from this place costs as less as four rupees.
Different snacks and local special dishes are also available here on prior order but none of those could replace the popularity of their special Vella Appams. The street is active even late into the night to meet the orders they have agreed upon. This is one of a kind place in Kerala you should visit for their tasty and unique dish and to witness an amazing culture so closely related with food.
