  • Appams are soft and spongy because of banana.
  • You can even add jaggery as such but I wanted to strain the impurities so made syrup and then added.
  • Add 3/4 cup jaggery if you want your appams to be more sweet.
  • 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.
