Appam is a sweet dish made with wheat flour and this is my daughter’s favorite. Normally this is made during Ganesha Chaturthi |Vinayagar Chaturthi. I made this for Janmashtami yesterday. Along with i made murruku, thattai, milk peda, and aval. Also this can be made for Karthigai deepam too.
Here is the recipe of sweet appam with whole wheat flour and jaggery. Check out the deep fried version of this Wheat appam.

  • Adding banana to this  will make the appam very softer even if it is consumed after few hours.
