Sweet and Savoury Godumai Appam - Sweet and Savoury Fried Wheat Dumplings

SWEET AND SAVOURY GODUMAI APPAM
All set to celebrate Kartigai Deepam with Vella Pori and Appam. Since children crave for a savoury snack after indulging in sweet Pori and sweet Appams a savoury version of Appam is also prepared soon after the Prasadams are ready.
GODUMAI VELLA APPAM
INGREDIENTS
Wheat flour - 1 glass
Rice flour - 2 tbsps glass
Ripe banana - 1(Mashed)
Powdered jaggery - 1/2 glass (Dissolved in 1/2 a glass of warm water and filtered)
Powdered cardamom - 1 pinch
Oil for frying
METHOD
1. Mix the flours, mashed banana and cardamom powder together. 
2. Add the jaggery water (I used Palm jaggey) little by little and blend it into a batter.
3. Add more water if necessary to make a thick and smooth batter of pouring consistency.
4. Pour oil into all the pits of a appam making vessel known as Appa Kuzhi.
5. Heat the oil and pour one scoop of batter in each kuzhi/pit.
6. When the Appams start turning reddish brown in colour they will start floating.


7. Flip them into the oil pits using a spoon and cook for two more minutes.
8. Remove one by one and drain them on a kitchen towel when done.


Offer them to the Lord along with Kartigai Pori and share the Prasadam with your dear ones.
