Appalam making was once a household task, with each family making enough for its annual needs during the blazing summer months. In due course, it graduated to the status of a cottage industry, providing uneducated women and housewives a welcome source of income from the comfort of their own homes.
With growing demand, appalam manufacture is now a highly-sophisticated industry. The Idhayam Group uses top-end technology to prepare the Dots appalams. Though the appalams are hand-made, the process of manufacture meets international hygiene specifications.

Industrial Standards
As a family-sized or a cottage enterprise, appalam-making is not a standardized procedure. But when it is geared up to a commercial operation, standardization becomes crucial - in terms of ingredients, methods and packaging techniques.
The Idhayam Group sources only the best ingredients for its Dots Appalams. The finest variety of black gram dal is used for the flour. The purest spices are added as flavourings. Even the water that is mixed into the flour to make it a pliable dough is WHO-Certified. Dots Appalams contain no harmful additives or chemicals.

International Quality
The dough is kneaded, rolled and cut, and then sun-dried to just the right level of brittleness.
Before the ready-to-fry DotsAppalams reach the consumer, they go through several more processes.
The appalams are sorted, graded, weighed and finally packed using high-end technology to ensure maximum shelf life. The care doesn't stop with the packaging. Even the cartons that are used to hold batches of appalam packs are sterilized to ensure that they are free of all pests and germs.
Indeed, such is the quality of the product that it has a huge export market. Even Queen Elizabeth II of England enjoys them!
