wheat appam recipe with step by step photos – quick sweet appams made with whole wheat flour, bananas and jaggery.

instant whole wheat appam recipe

when i had posted banana appam, one of my dear reader friend durga ji was kind enough to share her recipe of whole wheat appams. so yesterday i made these appams with some changes and thought of adding the recipe for ganesh chaturthi. these were really good and soft textured appams. very quick and easy to prepare. instead of making the appams in the appe pan, you can also fry them in oil.

these appams make for a nice evening snack. they stay for a week in the fridge. from the recipe i got about 40 appams. durga ji’s recipe has coconut added in it. i forgot to add coconut. so if using grated coconut, you can add about ¼ cup of it.

serve the instant whole wheat appams, hot or warm or at room temperature. they are a healthy snack which can be had any time of the day. can also be packed in the tiffin box.
