Palm Sugar Appam

This post is an entry for SNC Challenge,which don't need any introduction any more..This month South Team member Shama Nags challenged us with Pal Sugar Appam.,which turned out quite interesting sweet snack.
Unlike every month,this time i am last to submit my entry....but still i am happy that atleast i managed to prepare it. 

After couple of fail attempt (first 2-3 actually turned out like halwa  ) i managed to make them pretty perfectly  !!

After having it I felt like,this sweet pancake is actually a reply for our North's Pua (which is sweet flour batter,deep fried..have crispy at edges and soft in center)  !!

(6-7 Appam)

1/2 Cup Boiled Rice
1/2 Cup Raw Rice
1 tbsp Urad Dal
4-5 tbsp Jaggery/Palm Sugar(grated)
2-3 tbsp Water
3-4 tbsp Ghee

  • Soak Rice and dal separately for 2 hours.
  • Make fine paste of boiled rice,soaked rice and dal with 3-4 tbsp water.
  • Boil jaggery and water together to get thick syrup.Strain and mix it into rice-dal batter.
  • Batter must be runny but not very thin.
  • Heat non stick pan.Grease the bottom with little bit of ghee.
  • Pour a laddle full batter in center and tilt the pan to make dosa like pancake.
  • Low the heat and let it cook till you get brown edges.
  • Carefully remove from pan using wooden spatula.
  • Serve as it is or with honey.

# I folded it when it was still hot.it will become crispy once get cool down.
