Millet flour nei appam recipe with video and step by step pictures. Easy and Instant Nei appam made using millet flour, over riped banana and brown sugar, easy recipe for bachelors and working women. Generally we make nei appam with rice or rice flour or wheat flour. I have posted many varieties of nei appam in Jeyashri's kitchen. We make nei appam for ganesh chaturthi, avani avittam, Karthigai deepam and Krishna jayanthi too. This version of nei appam is with Thinai mavu | foxtail millet flour. I got a pack of thinai maavu to try out some sweet. Among the millet flours, thinai is perfect for making sweets. I have given few sweet recipes using thinai maavu in my Millet cook book. Recently a friend shared with me this recipe of nei appam using brown sugar. It tasted so yum and she made with rice flour. I wanted to try the recipe using the Thinai maavu i got from Sri Murugan stores.
