The founder, Mr.K.A.Velayudham’s father had started this business in a very small-scale level at his residence, approximately in the year 1915 for a livelihood. They were making pappadom which dilate during frying, which was sold five to ten bundles a day with which they survived and later manufactured Appalam which expand nearly double the size ,which is having a self life for fifteen months without adding any preservative . Appalam is famous in Tamil Nadu, and it secured little income so Mr.Velayudham’s father engaged some workers and trained them for making Appalam and pappadom.


Mr. K.A.Velayudham, he discontinued his studies up to seventh standard due to poverty and started to learn Appalam making, in the age of seventeen he was responsible for the family, and he made Appalam and sell them during second world war he hide under the bunker with his little stock struggled for sale to earn for the day living, Mr.K.A.Velayudham with four Annas capital he started the business and after that he bought a cycle, He began to sell his Appalam carrying on cycle, he coverd the area up to Thambaram. In the year 1945, Mr.K.A.Velayudham commercialized his business by making more Appalam appointing some labours. Mr.Velayudham opened a shop first at Mylapore and then in T.Nagar. The name and style became “AMBIKA APPALAM DEPOT” First only shop opened exclusively for Appalam and sold Appalam in packet.

In the year 1963, Ambika Appalam Depot had registered as a proprietary commercial establishment.

Ambika Appalam Depot attracted so many customers because of the delicious south Indian food products.
