  • 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:

    1. Add the jaggery to approx. 1/4 cup of water.
    2. 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.
    3. Sift the flours together, add the cardamom powder and mix well.
    4. Now slowly using a strainer, strain the jaggery liquid in to the flour mixture.
    5. Stir well, add some more liquid if needed to make a thick batter.
    6. Make sure the batter is lump free.
    7. Heat the paniyaram pan/puff pan.
    8. In each section, add about 1/4 tsp of oil.
    9. Once the oil is hot, drop spoonful of the batter in the pan.
    10. Once browned in the bottom turn to the other side.
    11. Repeat the same. Serve immediately.
