Appam for karthikai- low fat

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.
