Quick Sweet Rawa Appams

This is not an  Traditional South Indian Appam recipe in a strict sense. This recipe has come down to me from my mother in law, she makes mean appams... ooh I love them.

This one is a quick fix solution for the festival days when you forget to buy sweets or when you tend to wake up late and your hubby and kid are in a mood for something sweet.

These are very nutritious and make a good tiffin snack for kids.

I personally prefer home cooked sweets to the shop ones so I am always on a look out for something new.

Since Janmashtami is fast approaching I decided this recipe would be good prasad for Kishen Kanhaiyya!!!


1 Cup     Grated Coconut (You can also use dabur homemade coconut milk)
1 Cup     Sooji (the fine variety)
1/2 Cup  Poha
1/2 Cup  Jaggery
1/2 tsp    Elaichi Powder
1/2 tsp    Baking Powder(optional)


Grind the coconut finely.

Mix the ground coconut (or the coconut milk), sooji, poha, jaggery and the elaichi powder and cover and set aside for 1/2 hr. Now add the baking powder and mix.

Heat an appam pan. Add a little ghee. Spoon out a little of the batter and cook on low heat till the appams start turning golden brown. Now turn them over and cook for 5 more mins.
