Making this appam on Karthigai deepam day is a tradition followed in Tanjore and Trichy districts of Tamilnadu,not quite sure about other parts.
In my parents place,this appam is made using rice whereas in in laws place,its with wheat flour.Originally the recipe is a deep fried version,so followed it.But if you wanted to make a healthy and low calorie version,use the paniyaram/ableskevier pan.
In some places the same batter is spread on a dosa griddle like a pancake and offered.Off to the recipe........
- Cook it in a slow to medium flame and fry one appam at a time.
- While making in paniyaram pan make the batter slightly thinner like a dosa batter.
- Here I used the brown sugar,if you are using jaggery melt it with little water and strain it..
