Banana Appe

Any cooked and cool rice works good on this recipe . Alternatively you can even use rice flour instead of cooked rice to make this recipe . Actually original recipe calls for rice flour but to make use of left over rice , I often make this recipe .

My lil boy is a fussy eater and is very choosy about food. I really find it very hard to make him eat anything new or make him eat any sweet . His taste buds works only for savoury dishes and says BIG NO for all kind of sweet dishes.

So my only way to make him eat sweets is , I distribute among his friends and once they say it is delicious , then he slowly comes to me asking for it. Hence he has so many memories with friends for almost every sweet dish . At times he recalls those memories with his friends , narrates me the whole story and asks me for that particular dish. This banana appe is one among such category ….., he recalled a old memory and asked me for this mild sweetened banana appam.

This Banana appe is not very sweet . It has a balance of sweetness from banana , fresh coconut and jaggery . Also there is a hint of flavours from spices like cardamom , dry ginger , cumin and nutmeg. Its undoubtedly an healthy and tasty snack for kids. You can serve this banana appe either for breakfast or after school hours snack . This instant sweet appam is tasty and filling too .

One more appe which I often do the most is Instant Rava Paddu | Sooji Appe , which is loved by all at home .
