Sweet Kuzhi Paniyaram is a popular South Indian snack. I have already posted a savoury version of Kuzhi Paniyaram earlier.This is an instant sweet version that is perfect to be made for Karthigai Deepam which falls on 5th Dec – this friday. I usually make Nei Appam, which is an instant version too.This Sweet Kuzhi Paniyaram is crisp outside and extremely soft inside. Its totally divine when served hot/warm, satisfies sudden sweet cravings too.

Now to the recipe….



[Preparation Time-20 mins : Cooking Time- 15 mins]


  • Rava – 3/4 cup
  • Maida/All purpose flour – 1/4 cup
  • Rice Flour – 1 tbsp
  • Jaggery (powdered) – 3/4 cup
  • Grated Coconut – 2 tbsp
  • Banana – 1
  • Cardamom/Elaichi powder – a pinch
  • Ghee – for frying
  • Cooking Soda – a pinch




  • Take rava in a bowl and soak it with 2 to 3 tbsp of water for 15-20 mins. Take powdered jaggery and add very little water (again a few tbsp only). Heat it to a boil. No consistency is required.

  • Now add maida, grated coconut,mashed banana, rice flour, elaichi powder to the soaked rava. To this strain the jaggery syrup to remove any impurities and mix well. It should be in the form of dosa batter consistency. Make sure there are no lumps in it.

  • Heat a paniyaram pan and fill each hole with 1/2 tsp of ghee. Pour the kuzhi paniyaram batter upto 3/4 level in each hole. Cook in low flame, flip over to cook the other side until both the sides are golden brown.

Sweet Kuzhi Panayaram / Sweet Appam is ready.

Enjoy these crisp and soft appams hot!!




  1. Be careful while adding water to soak rava as well as jaggery syrup.Do not exceed as mentioned above. Else the batter will turn watery and it will be difficult to make the sweet kuzhi paniyarams.
  2. It is optional to use banana in the sweet kuzhi paniyaram recipe. But it gives a very good flavour and texture to it.
  3. U can use oil to fry the paniyarams too.
  4. If u do not have paniyaram pan u can shallow/deep fry them.
  5. Always cook in low flame, else it will burn outside and be uncooked inside.
  6. U can substitute sugar instead of jaggery.
