Vellam/Sweet Appam for Father's Day!!!

Appam is sweet dish. Its very soft inside and crunchy outside. My Dad likes sweet this is also one of his favourite sweets. Sweet Appams are prepared along with vadai on KaarthigaiDeepam day also to know more about this click here. It can be prepared on any other day too.

My Dad is in India so could not be with him but he has tasted many of my recipes while here. So I am sure these are his favourites, so sending to the event. I thank him for always being by my side. He has given maximum support and taught me many sweet recipes as he is an expert in Sweet Making. Thank you Dad:-)

Raw Rice or Normal Rice - 1 cup
Vellam/Jaggery - 1 cup(powdered)(If you it to be more sweet you can add little extra)
Elachi powder - a pinch
Oil for deep frying.

Wash and soak rice for about 6 hours or more in water.
Then grind rice with jaggery to fine paste(Like dosa batter)
Leave it for 2 to 3 hours. Then while making appams add elachi powder and mix well.
Heat an Appa Karal or Kuzhi paniyaram chetthi with oil.
Slowly pour them and deep fry both sides till brown. If you dont have proper stick you can remove them by fork or tikka sticks too. Remove them on a tissue.

Tasty sweet appams are ready to eat.

Variations : You can also add Jackfruit paste to this and it will taste yummy.

This is going straight to  I love my Dad Event for Father's Day by Jay.  Am also sending Kesari Bath to the event.
