INSTANT WHEAT FLOUR SWEET APPAM|GODHUMAI APPAM

As mentioned in my previous post,the upcoming posts would be the recipes of what I had tried for Krishna Jeyanthi.Most of them were first time trials and I believe I did a good job.This appam is a traditional dish which is usually made from raw rice by grandmother during Karthigai Deepam/Janmasthami etc.I did try that version too this time.But still due to lack of confidence I had this as a back up.Hubby and my little munchkin loved it and in no time it was all over.I didn’t have enough to even click some ok ok pictures(I know I click only very sumaaar! 🙁 😉 ).Next time I should save some to click better.They just melted it mouth and the flavour just pulled us to have more and more.You can make it instant or you can rest the batter and do it after few hours.This appam is a usual prasadh in temples of Kerela(Of course recipe has small variations and it is called Unniappam).They just taste divine.Are you confused between appam & aapam now?AAPPAM(ஆப்பம்) is similar to a dosa whereas APPAM(அப்பம்) is similar to dumplings.Appam is usually/traditionally deep fried.I was scared to deep fry the whole lot hence I used my PANIYARAM PAN.I have given both the ways below.

INSTANT FIGS & DRY FRUITS LADOO/BALLS – A NO COOK RECIPE

Most of the young mothers are very eager in introducing dry fruits to babies and I am definitely one among them.Dry fruits/nuts have so much of goodness in them that they aid with great variant of nutrients,help in preventing constipation,prevent aneamia, and also help in nourishing the health of the baby.I slowly introduced them as per my doctor’s advice by making them small pieces at initial stages,adding badam/cashew paste in dishes,including dry fruits milk ,making energy balls or energy bars . Later on he began taking them as such as whole nuts.This is one main reason behind my blog not having the recipes of any type dry fruits powder despite several requests from many readers. My sincere apologies for the same and I will be definitely do it before this month end as I have got a batch done recently.Today’s recipe was prepared for travel purpose for hubby and also for regular evening snack for my baby. Just few steps and it needs no cooking.This is the best part of this recipe. Come,Let’s check the recipe now.Do try and give me an update 🙂 Continue reading “INSTANT FIGS & DRY FRUITS LADOO/BALLS – A NO COOK RECIPE”

You can make it anyway with any stuffing of your choice hence I love it for being able to attempt “N” endless variations.For kids who love to munch on something this is a healthy meal.

P.S:

I like the soggy nature the roti acquires when stored for travel,hence added mayo.If you dislike please skip it.

For babies please use home made cheese.

Adjust spices as per your taste.

The stuffing shouldn’t be watery.Cook accordingly.

Don’t stuff too much.

Roll thinner wraps for younger kids which help them to handle easily.

This can be offered to babies above one year. It will be excellent finger food helping baby to bite,hold and chew.

Always have a word with your pediatrician before introducing any new food.
