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

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.
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
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.

Rice flour - 2 tbsps
Curds - 1/4 cup

Minced fresh coconut - 2 tbsps

1. Mix all the ingredients into a smooth and thick batter adding the required amount of water.
2. I also added two table spoons of M.T.R. Instant Rava Idly Mix which gave a nice texture to the  Appam.
3. Heat oil in the Appa Kuzhi as before.
4. Pour a scoop of batter into each pit.
5. Cook until the Appams turn golden brown in colour.
6. Flip and cook if necessary.
