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.

  1. Thanks! This helps a lot.
    Your recipes always come to my rescue whenever I am in a fix about what to cook. I just look up here and I always find something great to cook!

  2. Hello,
    I want to prepare this early in the morning for my kiddo’s breakfast. Can i make the batter ready and keep it in the fridge at night? Just want to save prep time during the morning rush hour. Thank you in advance.

  3. Hi Dassana, I have made many recipes from your blog and I loved them. Thank you for sharing such awesome recipes in the most simplest manner as possible. Keep up the great work.👍😍

  4. Dear Dassana ji,
    Thanks for this wonderful recipe & perfect measure 🙂 I follow your recipes very often
    I prepared these appams in ghee to offer as prasaad at my friends place for Ganesh chaturthi & it was a big hit!
    It is such a simple , quick recipe & delicious too!

  5. Hi Dasannaji
    Prepared these delicious appams as part of neivedhyam for Ganesh Chathuthi yesterday and there is a repeat order for this dish from my family. Thanks a lot for this yummmmmmy recipe. Have never fried appams in coconut oil before and that gives an excellent aroma to the appams.

  6. Hi,
    Nice and easy recipe This recipe is very similar to our regional food item called Gulgula made from wheat flour. We follow deep frying method to make that recipe.
    Thanks for sharing such a nice and healthy recipes.

  7. Looks yummy. would like to try this. Is blending essential? Can I mix the batter really well with a wired whisk?

    • these need to be cooked on a low flame. the ones in the center get cooked faster, then the ones at the sides. also the pan has to be slightly heavy and thick bottomed, otherwise the appams cook quickly from outside, but remain raw from the center. hope these tips help.

  8. Made it. By the time I finished making, I got just 1 piece for tasting. Rest all gulped by my kids and husband.☺️thank u

  9. Hello Dassana,
    I am a big fan of your blog. I have so far tried the applesauce cake, choco chip cookies, mumbai pav, paneer lababdar, veg pizza and today, tried these whole wheat appams. All these items were a big hit at home. Thank you for sharing such awesome recipes in the most simplest manner as possible. Keep up the great work 🙂

  10. Looking delicious!!
    Now a days I am researching on which appam stand to buy. Can you please suggest any good brand for induction cooktop?

  11. Seems like a wonderful item to try. I am wondering, can this be done in an oven? I have a muffin pan (very similar to the one you showed in your pictures) but it can not be kept on a stove for heating. If I have to use the oven, can you tell me at what temperature I should bake this? Thanks for your input. Keep up the great work!
