"Sweet Appo" is also know as Kuli Paniyaram in tamil. You need a special vessel to make this sweet. A very tasty sweet & very easy to make.
Raw Rice - 1 cup
Jaggery - 1& 1/4 cup
Coconut pieces - 3 tbspns (if dersired)
Elaichi powder - 1/2 tsp
Cahews & raisins - little
Ghee - as required
1. Soak rice for an hour. Grind to a coarse paste with as less water as possible.
2. Now to this add jaggery & Elaichi (I keep the jaggery in the microwave for a minute to soften it).
3. Once everything blends well, trasfer to a vessel & add the coconut pieces, cashews & raisins.
4. Keep the Appo vessel on gas & add ghee into each hole. Then once its hot pour in this mixture & cover & cook. Once the first sides done, turn & cook other side.. takes about 5 minutes to completly be done. Keep reating the process til your batters done!
Your Appo are ready to be served.... hot or cold its yummy always!
