The all-time favourite South Indian snack appam features here with a healthy twist. We have combined two wholesome flours with grated pear to make a naturally-sweet batter.
Laced with cardamom and honey and cooked with ghee in an appe mould, the Jowar and Pear Appam has a very rich taste that everyone will love. The grated fruit also gives the appam a soft and spongy texture.
In South India, appam is made commonly as an offering to Gods during the puja season. So, you can even include this wholesome treat in your festive menu!
You can also try other variants of appam like Unni Appam or Quick Idiyappam .
- Combine all the ingredients along with approx. ¾ cup of water in a deep bowl and mix well.
- Grease an appe mould with ¼ tsp of ghee and put 1 tbsp of the batter into each of the 7 appe moulds.
- Cook using ½ tsp of ghee till the lower surface becomes golden brown in colour, then turn each appam upside down using a fork and cook them till they turn golden brown in colour from the other side.
- Repeat steps 2 and 3 to make 14 more appams in 2 more batches.
- Serve immediately.
