If the batter is too thick,it won't get cooked properly in the middle, so dilute with water/ coconut milk for a pouring consistency. Add sodium bi carbonate carefully, don't add too much as it will lead to appam stick to the pan! At times I even skip adding cooking soda. Just make one and see if you get good holes as it gets cooked. If its fine, no need to add cooking soda. If takes long time to cook, add cooking soda.
