Sweet appe are cute little dumplings made in a special mould called appe pan. They're called sweet appe in Maharashtra, godu appo in Konkani, famously known as sweet kuzhi paniyaram in South India, paddu or guliappa in Kannada.
These can be made with many variations like wheat flour, rice flour, semolina and with the addition of fruits like banana or mango or dessicated coconut.etc etc Traditionally they are flavoured with cardamom powder, crushed aniseed (saunf)
Today I am making them with wheat flour and semolina combo and flavouring with organic jaggery, cardamom powder and fennel seeds.
Whole wheat flour... 1 cup
Semolina ............... 2 tbsps
Organic jaggery powder
Cardamom powder .. 1/4 tsp
Crushed fennel seeds... 1 tsp
Salt .......................... 1 pinch
Baking powder ........ 1 pinch
Water or milk .......... for mixing
Ghee ...................... for brushing.
1. Mix all the ingredients except ghee to make a smooth and thick batter.
2. Brush ghee liberally on the appe pan.
3. Pour the prepared batter into the mould. Keep the pan on the gas on medium flame and cover it with a lid.
5. Brush little ghee and cook on the other side and cook until done
Nice looking sweet paniyaram, specially, the use of jaggery in it , love it, its like malpuva but in ballsReplyDelete
Yes, you are right. They are like mini malpuasDelete
What a great way of making paniyaram. Using the appe pan is a healthy option. They remind me of malpuas. Must taste great topped with caramel sauce.ReplyDelete
Thanks Mina. You can serve and relish them the way you like.Delete
Lovely godu appo. This is such a fantastic dish to prepare. And healthy too.ReplyDelete
Yes dear, a delicious and quick treatDelete
The wheat flour appams are a little tricky as compared to the rice flour ones .i have had a few disasters :-) Yours have come out beautifully and are holding the shape well.ReplyDelete
Priya, probably because I make this batter often for other Sindhi breakfast dishes I have mastered it.Delete
I absolutely loved this sweet paniyaram. It's going to become a new thing in my house!ReplyDelete
