Goad Appams or sweet balls, is a traditional Konkani dish. In typical Konkani households, you would find this being used for the naivedya (offering) during Ganesh Pooja. It is also an easy alternative for the modak, which is an all-time hit during Ganapati festival.

To make these Appams, you need the appa kaili (kadai) which is made of iron. It has those semicircular cavities which give it the desired shape. You can place this on the normal gas top to make these Appams.

Ingredients

  • Wheat flour – 1 cup

  • Jaggery – 3/4cup

  • Grated Coconut (Optional) – ½

  • Ghee – 1 tbsp.

  • Salt – 1/6th tsp

  • Cardamoms (elaichi) powder – ½ tsp

1. Mix all the ingredients listed above and finely blend them to make the dough. The dough should be thick but not dry. So, do not add too much water. Use milk to get the desired consistency.

2. Heat the appe kaili (kadai) with a little ghee in each of the cavities so that the Appams do not stick to the kadai

3. Now pour little dough in each of these cavities one by one

4. Cook it with a cover for 5-7 minutes on low flame

5. Use a spoon to turn these Appams over .Again cook on low flame for 5 mins.

Use little ghee on the Appams each time to turn them over so that the edges are crispy and taste great. The color of these Appams is medium to dark brown by the time they are ready.
