About Us

Aappakadai was started with the thought of introducing the taste and flavors of Aappam to Northern California, United States. Aappakadai was started with a small team of experienced chefs who are passionate about South Indian Chettinad Food.

The recipes of Aappakadai come from the spice racks of the Grandmother. Traditionally fresh and hot home-made ‘Aappam’ were sold as a breakfast dish in the streets of Chettinad.

‘Aappam’ is a specialty dish from the Chettinad, made of fermented rice flour. Traditionally Aappam is served with coconut milk. But Aappakadai serves Aappam with various Chettinad spicy dishes like Goat Paaya, chicken curry etc to name a few. With an excellent blend of traditional recipes and innovation, the Chefs of Aappakadai are striving to fulfill the appetite of the chettinad food lovers.
