Instant wheat flour appam is a super easy, yummy and healthy sweet recipe that can be prepared in no time with only few ingredients that you can easily pull out of your pantry. This instant appam is a great way to make use of overripe banana and also this appam can be made during festivals or can be served as evening snack to satisfy that tiny sweet craving. I have added cashews in this recipe so that in between the spongy texture we can feel some crunchiness as well. Most importantly I have used very little ghee in making appam by using appe/ paniyaram pan instead of deep frying which again adds to health benefit.
