NEI APPAM RECIPE
Nei appam is generally made during Krishna jayanthi |Gokulashtami along with Uppu seedai and Vella seedai.  We also make this for Ganesha Chathurthi and Karthigai Deepam too. Even for working women who cannot come and make all items elaborately after coming back from office, they can offer Nei appam and Aval payasam for neivedhyam. This nei appam my amma makes very nice and generally she deep fries it . But i made in paniyaram pan . So sharing today the recipe of nei appam  which i learnt from my mom.

INGREDIENTS: MAKES 12 APPAMS

RAW RICE 1/2 CUP
URAD DAL 1 TBLSP
RAVA | SOOJI 1 TSP
JAGGERY 1/4 CUP + 1 TBLSP
GHEE AS NEEDED
CARDAMOM POWDER A PINCH
COCONUT GRATED 2 TBLSP
