Instant Wheat Flour Appam - Sweet Appam With Wheat Flour

Print Friendly and PDF
appam-sweet version

I wanted to post instant sweet appam with wheat flour (Godhumai maavu appam) in my blog for long time. I learnt this from my MIL. We make this wheat flour appam with jaggery for Gokulashtami and Ganesh Chaturthi. My MIL makes this for occasions / festivals and for guest as evening tiffin along with filter coffee. We can make this appam in two ways. It can be deep fried or shallow fried in paniyaram pan.

 Today, for Friday pooja, I made this appam using wheat flour and I made it in paniyaram pan. It was very soft , spongy and delicious.  My MIL makes a savoury version too. I’ll post it soon. Mostly my MIL makes this appam with maida and very rarely with wheat flour.  Enjoy this guilt-free appam as evening tiffin along with bonda/bajji and coffee !

1 cup - 250ml
  • Wheat flour – 1 cup
  • Ripe banana – 1 no
  • Rice flour -  1.5 tbsp
  • Grated jaggery – 1/2 – 3/4 cup
  • Cooking soda – 1/8 tsp
  • Salt – A pinch
  • Elachi – 2 nos ( crush to powder)
Oil – to drizzle


  • In a bowl , take the banana & mash well. Add the wheat flour, rice flour, salt, baking soda , jaggery & cardamom powder.

  • Heat a paniyaram pan and add 1/2 tsp of oil in each hole. Pour a small ladleful of batter, cover & cook for sometime in medium flame.
  • Flip it after few seconds and again add 1/2 tsp oil. Cook for a minute & remove.

  • Serve hot !!
  • For variations, you can use maida instead of wheat flour.
  • Sometimes my MIL adds sugar instead of jaggery.
  • For kids, you 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.
