Ugadi Special Wheat Appam

We, at Daily Kneads, wish you and your family a very Happy and Healthy Ugadi and Gudi Padwa.  We hope this New Year fills you with energy, enthusiasm, and gratitude.

Ugadi is celebrated as a New Year by the people of the Telugu and Kannada communities in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Karnataka. In Maharashtra, this New Year festival is known as Gudi Padwa.

It is a time for celebration and none of it is complete if we don’t have a delicious feast. After a heavy lunch we take a nap or spend time with our loved ones and then when it's tea time, we always crave for a snack. If you're looking for a quick healthy snack, we have the crispy, tasty Appam/ Paniyaram snack. This spongy Appam is commonly prepared on festivals like Karthikey Deepam, Krishna Jayanthi, Ugadi etc. It is made with whole wheat flour, rice flour, semolina (sooji/rava), jaggery, banana, grated coconut and ghee.

Ripe banana - 2 medium size

Wheat flour (Daily Kneads Millet Power atta) - 2 cup
