Sweet Appam Recipe - Instant Wheat Flour Appam

Instant Wheat Flour Banana Appam

This Instant Sweet Appam using wheat flour is my recent try, it tasted soo good that I am going to make this often may be I will choose the option of using kuzhipaniyaram pan like here.I've heard from my neighbour that they make this appam for Karthigai Deepam so thought this would be a timely post :)

As I have already posted the low fat version of wheat flour appam I tried deep frying them this time, the appams came out so soft and spongy....the banana flavour in this appam is so flavourful that you cannot stop with one.These appams doesn't require any soaking and grinding like neiappam so you can make this sweet appam instantly.Check out instant neiappam that I've already posted.

You can even treat your kids with healthy snack when they return back from school....!

Sweet Appam Recipe

My Notes:

  • If you are the normal kadai for deep frying then use a bigger laddle but make sure the laddle is deep curved one so that you get good round shaped appams.
  • Banana gives a soft and spongy texture to the appams, and the flavour is amazing.
  • 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 increase jaggery if your banana is not sweet.
  • You can choose to make this in paniyaram pan too.
  • You can fry the appams in half ghee and half oil too.
  • You can make this appams instantly just mix and deep fry no need to wait.

  1. this is our family fav.. if any unexpected guests arrive this pazham bonda is a real life saver..really looks tempting Sharmi..

  2. that is such a fav one!!! love this festive dish!!

  3. Wow super spongy, looks so soft appams. Your pictures speeks a lot. Timely recipe for Karthigai. There is a techniq to pour these appams. I want to you to ask with Amma and explain it in the next post. They used to pour it with sambar ladle(Kuzhi karandi) in the hot oil with a technical way.... slowly pour till the oil level, oru nimisham timela slowva oru vilimbu kattum. ( a border like a proper circle) then only we should touch the oil , to turn, it puffs up like small ball both the sides. I have seen that but unable to learn it and execute it. Try to get the idea from Amma and explain us. But easy way I do with Paniyarakkal so shape guaranteed and if I follow your step by step method and measures, taste is 100% guaranteed. Now a days your font style for name of the dish, looks so attractive. Unique style in every small thing, u r taking so much care. Keep it up.

  4. Sharmi, I appreciate your eco friendliness. Pakku mattai plate and valai izhai on the top, oru appam mattum half open to show the texture, really too tempting. Real meaning of fluffy can be seen in the photograph itself. Keep it up.

    Chandramukhi moviela, Rajini sees Chandramukhi's drawing/photo in the palace and says, Rasikandaa...... (with the tone.... really u can feel the beauty in it) Unga food photography parkkum podhu adhe mathiri solla thonuthu.... Unga photos ... ellam rasikanum... its a visual treat to our eyes...
