  • 1 cup - maida (all-purpose flour)
  • 1/2 cup - rice flour
  • 1/2 tsp - cardamom powder (or powder 3 to 4 cardamom seeds)
  • 1/2 cup - jaggery, powdered

How to Make Low Calorie Appam

  • Add the jaggery to approx. 1/4 cup of water.
  • If you have trouble breaking the jaggery, placing them in the water for few minutes - this will help you break it down easily. Using hands or back of a spoon, make sure that there are no lumps.
  • Sift the flours together, add the cardamom powder and mix well.
  • Now slowly using a strainer, strain the jaggery liquid in to the flour mixture.
  • Stir well, add some more liquid if needed to make a thick batter.
  • Make sure the batter is lump free.
  • Heat the paniyaram pan/puff pan.
  • In each section, add about 1/4 tsp of oil.
  • Once the oil is hot, drop spoonful of the batter in the pan.
  • Once browned in the bottom turn to the other side.
  • Repeat the same. Serve immediately.
