appam-sweet version

I wanted to post this recipe in my blog for long time. I learnt this from my MIL. She makes this for occasions/festivals  & for guest as evening tiffin along with filter coffee.She makes a savoury version too.I’ll post it soon.Mostly my MIL makes this appam with maida and very rarely with wheat flour.Today, for friday pooja , i made this appam using wheat flour.  I din’t deep fry instead i made in paniyaram pan.. It was very soft ,spongy & delicious.Enjoy this guilt-free appam as evening tiffin along with bonda/bajji & coffee !

  • For variations , u can use maida instead of wheat flour.
  • Sometimes my MIL adds sugar instead of jaggery..
  • For kids , u an deep fry & give. To get a proper shape while deep frying , keep little oil and pour the batter & fry on both sides till golden brown. U’ll get a nice shape..
