Sweet Appo

"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!

This is one of my favorites. But it's been a long time since I made it. I add some mashed bananas in mine. Ah...Seema,you have made me crave for it right now. What to do? Next 4 days I'm going out. No cooking at all. :-(

Hi Seema.. this looks lovely. I made this just once but it turned out too dark for me and wasn't very soft.. maybe i should try your method. Does this turn out soft?

A little wheat flour yields soft and spongy aapams.

Seema said...

Asha- Great idea, Pancakes in Paniyaram style!! Your so innovative:-)

Kribha- Yes people add bananas, but i dont like that, so make minus them.. Craving - Hmm... come back from vacation & have them.

Laavanya- It comes very soft & fluffy. Batter should be slightly thick, not watery.

Pravs- Thanks! Its an All India dish i must say :-)
