Appam is a common food in Kerala – where Chef Vinod is originally from in India - and is eaten most frequently for breakfast or dinner and considered a staple in locals diets and also serves as a cultural synonym of the Syrian Christians.

The Saint Thomas Christians, also called Syrian Christians or Nasrani, is a community of Christians from Tamilakam in present-day Kerala, India, who trace their origins to the evangelistic activity of Saint Thomas in the 1st century, and is one of the oldest Christian communities of the world. The term Syrian relates not to their ethnicity but to their historical, religious, and liturgical connection to the Church of the East, or East Syrian Church.
