Sweet Appam or Instant Nei Appam is a very easy to make sweet during festival seasons. Perfect for Navaratri or Karthigai. Above all this version does not require any soaking or grinding. You can make it with the usually available ingredients from your kitchen. U just need to mix some ingredients, and shallow fry it in a paniyaram pan. How cool is that?!? Likewise do try my Rava Sweet Paniyaram as well. While there are many methods of making sweet appam this is with whole wheat flour. Guilt free right ?

Now to the recipe.

Karamani Sweet Sundal – Navaratri Recipes

October 5, 2013 Navaratri Special  No comments

As Navaratri has started wanted to begin with a sundal variety. Navarati is a festival dedicated to the worship of the Hindu deity Durga. Sundal is an ideal dish during Navaratri. This Karamani Sweet Sundal is an easy sundal variety made with Karamani. Other names are Lobia or Black eyed peas.  U can serve this as a snack too rather than just during navaratri days. While most of my sundal varieites would be salted/spicy versions this sweet one is my favourite. Do try my Peanut Sundal as well which is yet another protein-rich sundal.
