Sweet Appam- 250th Post

Appam is a known dish in Tamilnadu. There are different versions of appam and this is very simple version which we make during festivals like Krishna Jayanthi and Kaarthikai.

Wheat flour                          1/2 cup
Maida -                               1/2 cup
Rice flour –                         2tbsp
Jaggery –                            ½ cup
Cardamom powder n-           1/2 tsp.
Baking soda                       – a pinch
Water -
Oil                                     for frying

  • Add a little water to jaggery and soak for 15 minutes.  Dissolve well and filter it to get rid off any dirt.
  • In a bowl , add the flour and powdered cardamom and add the jaggery liquid to it and mix well till you get a consistency of a thick dosa batter or idly batter(Make sure it is not so free flowing. When you drop it from the ladle it should fall slowly). Keep for 30 minutes.
  • Heat a oil in a deep frying pan, (Keep a slow fire.)
  • When oil hot is enough, take the dough in a small ladle and drop it into the oil.
  • Cook one side and then turn the other side.
  • Let it fry till it becomes golden brown. Drain it on the paper towel.
  • You can make 3 to 4 appam at a time depending on the size of your pan.
  •  Repeat the procedure with the rest of the batter and serve hot or warm.
