Instant God Appe / Sweet Paddu / Paniyaram

God Appe
Since I brought a mini pancake pan, Appe has joined our list of breakfast menu. So far, I have posted savory recipes. You guys might have read about
Udid Methi Appe and also an instant version of Gluten free AppeToday I made God Appe for breakfast. Sweet appe or paddu or paniyaram are made either with rice or wheat. Wheat flour is the instant one as compared to the rice paddu. Hope you all like these sweet pancakes with bananas.

Whole Wheat Flour - 1 cup
Flattened Rice/Thin Poha - 1/2 cup
Grated Jaggery/Gud/Gul - 1/2 cup
Shredded Coconut (fresh or frozen) - 1/4 cup
Ripe Bananas - 2 big
Green Cardamom/Elaichi - 2 pods
Oil or Ghee/Clarified Butter

How to make Instant God Appo:
  • Blend flattened rice, grated jaggery, coconut and bananas to a slightly coarse paste in a food processor or a blender.
  • If jaggery is not available, brown sugar is a good substitute. Based on the sweetness you like, add more or less jaggery.
  • Crush cardamom seeds to a fine powder in a mortar pestle.
  • In a mixing bowl, add the ground paste, cardamom powder and whole wheat flour. Add water little at a time, to make a thick batter of pouring consistency. You can add a pinch of baking soda to the batter as well.
  • Heat the Danish pan / Appe pan, the one with wells. Grease the wells with oil or ghee. Ghee tastes better for these sweet globes. 
  • Add about 1 tbsp batter in each well. Do not overfill the wells. Cook for 2 - 3 minutes or until pancakes/appe start to pull away from the sides of the well and have browned at the bottom. Using wooden skewers or a fork, gently flip each pancake/appo and finish cooking on the other side.
  • Below is the picture of a cast iron Danish Aebleskiver pan which is perfect for making South Indian Appe.  If you are not a fan of sweet appe, take a look at savory Appe / Paniyaram / Paddu made of idli batter.
  • Grease the wells for each round and repeat the process for the batter.
Enjoy God Appe for breakfast or a light snack. Top them with more ghee if you like.
