Instant wheat flour appam/ Sweet appam is a super easy and quick to make yummy deep fried snack 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 like Krishna Jayanathi and Karthika Deepam 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. Also for sweetness you can replace sugar with jaggery and it will taste yummy.

How to make Instant Sweet appam with step by step images


  1. Peel banana and mash them in a bowl.

  2. Now to the mashed banana add wheat flour, rice flour, baking soda, cardamom powder and chopped cashews and sugar (coconut optional). Mix it well and add water gradually to form thick batter. ( I added around ¾ cup water with the same cup I measured wheat flour).
  3. The batter should be thick like idli batter because thick batter will only yield fluffy appam, if you feel the batter got a little runny add some more wheat flour to adjust the consistency. Make sweet appam immediately as the mixture will turn brown quickly. 
  4. Now heat/ ghee oil in a small frying pan. When the oil is just hot pour a ladle if batter in oil and cook it in medium flame. When the appam/ sweet paniyaram puffs and floats up in the oil flip it gently and cook. When both sides look cooked with even browning remove it from oil and transfer it to a plate with paper towel. Do not cook the paniyaram in high flame as the inside wont be cooked and also don’t be misjudged by the color as the inside might be uncooked. Serve the appam hot.
