Wheat Flour Sweet Appam Recipe | Karthigai Deepam Recipes

Wheat Flour Appam
Wheat Flour Sweet Appam(Godhumai Appam) is an easy instant appam recipe which can be made for karthigai deepam. Traditionally this appam is deep fried but ti cut down oil I used the paniyaram pan, you can either deep fry or make it in paniyaram pan as like me.These appams doesnt require any soaking and grinding like neiappam so you can make this sweet appam instantly.

You can even treat your kids with this healthy snack when they return from school....I love any appam recipe and this one is my fav anytime!

Sweet Appam Recipe

My Notes:

  • Banana gives a soft and spongy texture to the appams.
  • You can even add jaggery as such but I wanted to strain the impurities so made syrup and then added.If you want your appams to be more sweet then add 3/4 cup jaggery.
  • You can deep fry the appams too.Take the batter using a deep curved laddle and drop it in preheated oil and fry till golden brown.
  • You can even add coconut bits instead of grated coconut.
  • You can fry the appams in ghee too.

  1. Sweet appam looks super delicious and soft....nice clicks

  2. Dear, i love this recipe. would like to try...what is jiggery? any other substitute?tx dear

  3. we make a similar recipe bt in kadai and nt in paniyaaram pan.. nd v call it undakkai.. urs luk awesome in uniform sizes..so nex tym ll try to make in paniyaaram pan

  4. Hi Sharmi, Appealing Appam... we used to prepare using sugar n we cal it as Kachhayam, one of the signature dish of coimbatore... Nice variation...

  5. delicious and irresitible appam....

  6. Nice one. Any disk we can prepare with wheat flour on the paniyaaram pan which is not a sweet dish?? My daughter does not eat anything sweet :(

    1. You can skip the jaggery part and temper with mustars greenchilliesm add onion saute till golden brown and then add it to the batter just like how we make for kara paniyaram...it will taste good

  7. I tried this recipe but it was a big blunder. The batter was sticking to the pan n not coming off. I tried deep frying. Does the batter need any fermentation

    1. No fermentation required, just grease your pan with oil and turn over to other side only when one side is half cooked as you can see in the steps...

  8. Mam is baking soda a must in this recipe. What does baking soda do....

    1. Yes as we are not fermenting soda helps to give soft textured appams
