Appam for karthikai- low fat

low fat karthigai appam Karthikai deepam is celebrated by hindu Tamilians in the karthikai month of Tamil calender. If you are interested , you can read about it here.
Lot of sweets and savories are made on this day. It includes ladoos made of puffed rice and jaggery called karthikai pori(a special kind of puffed flaked rice).
I did not have this rice. So I made appams for the festival. Traditionally the appams are deep fried. But I made them on the kuzhipaniyaaram pan . So this one can be consumed without any guilt.I took the idea from laavanya as I have seen her trying out so many dishes with the paniyaaram pan. My one year old loved the appams.

Rice- 1cup
Jaggery- 1/2 cup
Grated coconut- 1/2 cup
Cardamom powder- 1.2tsp

Soak the rice for 2 hours. Drain the water and grind it to a smooth paste. Now add banana,jaggery,grated coconut and cardamom powder and grind to a smooth paste.
Leave the batter for a couple of hours.This resting time is important for soft appams. Now coat the paniyaaram pan with very little ghee. Add the batter in the pan. After a few minutes, flip them and cook on the other side. Remove from the pan.low fat janmashtami appam
I am sending them to srilekha's Efm- sweet event.
