The easiest, tastiest and fluffy Appam I have ever made. I learnt this from my sister. With just two ingredients the appams taste very crispy out and soft inside. It also stays fresh for days.

Servings 6


  • 1 cup Rice raw
  • 1 cup Powdered Jaggery
  • 1/2 spoon cardamom powder tea
  • Desi Ghee or oil or oil for deep frying


  • Take 1 cup of raw rice, wash it and soak in water for two hours. Drain the water completely out after soaking.
  • Take 1 cup of Powdered jaggery , put in the mixer jar and give few turns. Now add the soaked rice without water to the jar.
  • Grind to smooth paste. No need to add water. When rice and jaggery grinds together automatically it gives out water. Transfer the batter to a bowl.
  • Wash the jar and take the washed water in a pan. Switch on the stove and stir the water continuously and in few minutes you will get the thick porridge consistency.
