How to make easy sweet appam recipe

Quick and easy sweet appam
  • This appam is prepared for Krishna Janmashtami as an offering or neivedyam to Lord Krishna in our family circles.. Usually prepared with jaggery,  I have done with sugar to make it easy to justify the title !
  • We need, one cup boiled milk, one cup sugar , one cup maida and cardamom seeds or elakkai powder .
  • Mix all the three , sugar, maida in milk.  Wait for around 10 minutes so that the sugar is completely dissolved in  milk.
  • Add cardamom powder ,  the image below shows what is correct viscosity of the batter to get perfect appams.
  • Heat the stove > When oil is hot turn the knob on the stove to sim position
  • the batter is poured in hot oil using a ladle or spoon.  
  • When  the appam becomes brown turn to the other side .  This ensures that it gets cooked evenly and completely.
  • One important point to be noted is that we should  fry the appam one by one otherwise they will stick together in the oil
  • This  can also be a easy evening snack when guests arrive suddenly.
  • Children will also love it because it is soft and sweet. 
  • The only problem we may encounter is that there may be uncooked batter in the appam if we do not fry completely..
  • This is a  sweet so no particular side dish is required
  • We prepare it on Sri Jayanthi
  • Mixing of ingredients should be  thorough to avoid presence of solid particles in the batter
