Appam (using Paniyaram Pan) | Godhumai Paniyaram | Sweet Wheat Aebleskiver

 When we were kids, my grandma used to make deep fried appams/ Kachayam with wheat flour and ripe bananas. It has been a long time since I had this. Recently I came across this recipe in Priya's Versatile Recipes and tried it. It was similar to my grandma's only that this is not deep fried and made in paniyaram/ aebleskiver pan. Everyone at home loved it, especially my kids. It is great for breakfast or just for snack. Other  points to note about this is , no side dish is required for this and its completely vegan.  It's a true Kids delight. 

What are the ingredients needed?

Wheat flour- 1 cup
Rice flour, 1/4 cup
Large ripe banana, 1 no.
Jaggery (grated), 1/2 cup
Baking soda, 1/2 tsp
Cardamom, 3 nos
Sugar, to powder the cardamom
Salt, a pinch

  1. Mash the banana well.
  2. Powder the sugar and cardamom.
How it is made?
  1. Mix all the dry ingredients like wheat flour, rice flour, baking soda & salt and set them aside.
  2. Heat the jaggery with 1/4 cup water, when the jaggery completely dissolves remove from the stove and filter the syrup to remove the impurities, if any. 
  3. Add this syrup to the flour mixture , add the mashed banana and powdered cardamom and mix well. If needed, add some water to get the desired consistency similar to idly batter/ pancake batter.
  4. Heat the paniyaram/ aebleskiver pan, add oil in each cup and pour the batter and cook in low flame and then turn the other side cook till its done. 
  5. Remove from the pan and serve.
  • If the banana is large, one banana is enough, but if it is small add two. 
  • You can replace jaggery with sugar, if you desire. 
  • Never cook them in high flame, they will turn brown fast but inside the batter will still be uncooked. So cook in low flame. use a toothpick to insert in the middle to see if it's done.
