Gokulastami is approaching and appam, vella aval, seedai, thattai and murukku are the most neivedhyam (offering) prepared for Lord Krishna. Traditionally nei appam is made with rice and requires little planning ahead like soaking the rice and grinding. Last year my mom shared this instant and easy appam recipe with wheat flour and banana. It turned out soft and was equally tasty as the rice flour ones. Since it does not require any soaking or grinding, this recipe is perfect for working women and beginners.
Try this instant appam for Janmashatami this year. Take a look at other recipes in the blog for Gokulashtami / Sri Krishna Jayanthi:
Notes and Tips
- Depending on the sweetness of your jaggery and banana, you can reduce/add the amount of jaggery.
- You can add coconut bits (thenga kothu) instead of grated coconut.
