- Make shapes or simply make round shapes and deep fry them in ghee or oil.
- I made little loose dough so i didnt made any shapes.The dough is too much stiff so add more tbsp milk to the dough and make appam
- Or make instantly when you prepare the dough.as it contains more fibres it aborbs more liquid.So make appams immediately.
- Use jaggery instead of sugar.It makes more healthy and more sweet.
- Added only 5 tbsp of sugar because the banana i used is more sweet.
- Pistachios and almond paste makes more healthier and yummy treat for kids.
- Fry in either ghee or oil.Being health conscious i used oil for frying.
