If you are familiar with South Indian cooking, you are sure to have encountered the traditional appam, the irresistibly sweet, deep-fried, brown-coloured balls fragrant with banana and molten jaggery!
While it is traditionally made using ground wheat or a combination of wheat and rice, here is a slightly modified version using just rice.
You can aslo try savoury appes like Rice Appe and Urad Dal and Vegetable Appe .
- Heat the ghee in a small non-stick pan, add the coconut and sauté on a medium flame for 1 minute, keep aside.
- Combine the rice, jaggery, banana and 1 tbsp of water in a mixer and blend it till smooth.
- Transfer the mixture, in a deep bowl add the coconut and cardamom powder, mix well.
- Heat little ghee in an appe mould on a medium flame, pour 1 tbsp of the batter into each mould.
- Cook, using little ghee, till the lower surface becomes golden brown and then turn each appam upside down using a fork so as to cook them from the other side.
- Repeat with the remaining batter to make more appams.
- Serve immediately.
