It’s very fair on me to try these sweet appam this week because they are extra delicious, spongy with porous look. It is little sweet, little soft and a little grainy to chew. As they get cooked in appam pan this morning the flavorful awesomeness wafted out and could hardly control my hungry self till I finished cooking.
No cans of anything here- just lots of real and healthy ingredients (OK. FINE there’s little ghee) which kind of feels good, smart and comfortable. The scenario is REAL food + COMFORT food which is always a WINNER.
I had heard many debates about these appams saying they turn very hard and chewy when prepared at home. But the appam prepared at my kitchen prove the above debate to be WRONG. I bet if you make sweet appam with equal proportion of raw rice, grated coconut and puffed paddy, they turn extremely soft. Addition of ripe banana gives the appam a spongy texture inside and the sesame seeds an extra crunch.
Sweet appam is best opted by people who need fast and easy snack because they have chronic lateness or people who like to feel like they’re eating dessert all the time. I do fit in both the categories. I sort of love these sweet appam to snack in between meals. How about you??
