Sarkara Appam


Sarkara Appam

This is a quick and instant snack.It is made with wheat flour and sarkara/jaggery. Wheat flour,banana and jaggery is made into a smooth thick paste and fried. There is no need to ferment and you can use it instantly.For best results and taste use smaller type bananas. In Kerala we use  cheru pazham or palayam thodan or you can use ripe plantains or ethapazham which can be easily mashed. Try this, it is simple and very tasty.

Ingredients
Wheat flour- 1 1/2 cup
Jaggery powdered-  3/4 cup
(adjust according to sweetness you like
and also according to the type of banana)
Banana/cheru pazham-3
Cardamon crushed- 5
Dry ginger/chukku - a pinch
Salt- a pinch
Ghee- 1/2 tsp
Oil for frying



Mix powdered jaggery with 1/2 cup of water and bring to boil. When it dissolves completely switch off and allow to cool. In a blender make a paste of this jaggery water and banana.
In a bowl add wheat flour, crushed cardamon, dry ginger powder  salt and ghee and finally the the banana jaggery paste. Use more water if needed and make a medium thick batter. Consistency should be similar to idli batter. Allow it to rest for four to five minutes.
Meanwhile heat oil in a pan and now pour spoon full of batter into the oil.Fry in medium low flame or the inside of the appam will not get cooked and the outside will get browned up quickly. Fry on both side till it becomes evenly brown. Drain into paper towels. Serve with tea.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy

Goan Mutton Vindaloo

Mutton Vindaloo Today's recipe is the hot and spicy Goan favorite, Vindaloo. It is lip-smacking delicious, spicy curry. Authentic Goan Vindaloo is made with pork, but you can also use beef or mutton. In today's recipe, I have used mutton. It is popular among Christians, and the  Anglo-Indian community.  Most Indian restaurants have Vindaloo on their menu. This curry is even popular outside India.

12 Delicious Jackfruit Recipes- Kerala Cuisine

  12 Delicious Jackfruit Recipes- Kerala Cuisine Jackfruit is the most versatile of all tropical fruits. It is a common fruit in Kerala and South India. When in the season, it is considered a staple food. The sheer variety of recipes with jackfruit is quite astounding. No wonder it is known as the official fruit of the Kerala state! Ripe jack fruit has a firm texture and tastes like honey. It adds an exotic taste to desserts. The young or tender jack fruit is used for savory dishes and has a meaty texture. The unripe one has a neutral flavor, and we use it to make mashed jack fruit/puzhukku, and it tastes best with spicy fish curry.
