Wheat Flour Appam | Appam Recipe | Karthigai Deepam Recipe

Yesterday only, i noticed that it has been more than 2 weeks since it posted anything on my blog. As karthigai deepam festival is tomorrow, i thought of sharing the recipe used to make for this festival.In our home, we never make appam for karthigai deepam, we only make kozhukattai and offer to god on that day. But recently , i came to know that most of the people make appam for karthigai deepam.

 This wheat flour appam is very easy to make and it tastes wonderfully with banana & cardamom flavor. This appam  can be made in paniyaram pan too. But the texture and taste is totally different from fried one. I made  this in both ways and like the fried ones a lot.Give it a try for this Karthigai Deepam. 


Wheat Flour - 1 cup
Rice Flour - 2 tbsp
Banana - 2 nos
Jaggery - 1/2 cup tightly packed
Cardamom - 1 (crushed)
Oil/ ghee for frying


Crush the jaggery & heat  it in the pan along with  1/4 cup of water and allow to melt. Once it melts completely, allow to cool.

Peel the banana and mash them well with masher/fork.

In the mashed banana , add the remaining ingredients(Wheat flour,rice flour & cardamom) except oil/ghee and the jaggery syrup. 

Mix it well, if needed add more water and make it as pouring consistency.

Now heat the oil for frying and pour the laddle full of batter in the oil and cook it in low flame on both sides until it becomes brown color

To cook them in paniyaram pan, heat the pan with ghee on each hole, pour the batter in each hole and cook them on both sides.

That's Tasty Wheat Flour Appam is ready.


  • Filter the jaggery syrup before adding to remove impurities.
  • Cook it on low flame , otherwise it turns darker on outside easily with raw inside.
  • I used oil for frying ,but you can use mixture of oil and ghee to enhance flavor.
  • I  used too small banana , if you're using big one, one is enough.
