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.

Sweet Appam Ingredients:

  • Wheat Flour – 1cup
  • Rice Flour – 1 cup
  • Jaggery – 1 cup
  • Elaichi Powder – 1 pinch
  • Ripe banana- 1


  • Soak jaggery (till immersing level of water) for 10 mins. Heat it until it bubbles, no consistency is required. Strain to remove impurities and keep aside. Mash banana into a smooth paste . Meanwhile take wheat flour & rice flour in a vessel and add the banana and jaggery syrup and mix to form a batter.Make sure there are no lumps.

  1. The batter consistency should be that of dosa batter. However add less water to jaggery else the batter may become watery.
  2. On the other hand, if the batter is thick you can add water to get the required consistency.
  3. If you dont have a paniyaram pan, you can use ghee/oil to fry in a kadai. But only one can be made in a batch .
  4. You can add small pieces of coconut or chopped and roasted cashews to the batter for extra taste.
