If you are familiar with South Indian cooking, you are sure to have encountered the traditional appam, the irresistibly sweet, deep-fried, brown-coloured balls fragrant with banana and molten jaggery!

While it is traditionally made using ground wheat or a combination of wheat and rice, here is a slightly modified version using just rice.

You can aslo try savoury appes like Rice Appe and Urad Dal and Vegetable Appe .
