Gothumai Appam /Gothumai Paniyaram -Karthigai Deepam special


Gothumai appam /karthigai appam is a deep fried wheat based prasadham offred during the Karthigai deepam day for Lord Murugan.
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........

I just love this type of appams. Using jaggery is a nice variation to the refined sugar.

Sweet appams !.wow !.you think sugar would work equally good ? reminds me of the poodas that we make .

We add banana in this paniyaram along with coconut, feel like munching some though am keeping myself away from deep fried foods.

Sweet appams are on my to-do list since forever. Looking at all these pictures, I am tempted to make them really soon!!

We make the appams same way, also spread like a pancake batter. Just made them last week for kids snack. Love them, yours look delicious:)

Oh wow! You have made it the traditional way by deep frying. I almost use paniyaram pan for all my appam these days. This method though is even more flavorful!

Sooo soft and fluffy godhuma appam Nalini. They look delicious.

My mom used to make this and she used to say that wheat gives a real soft texture compared to rice. I love these a lot!
