Kaaju (Mundhiri/Cashew) Appam
Are you bored with Kaaju kheer or kaaju kathili?! Yeah its the right time to try something nice and different with kaaju. Mundiri Appam is an exhotic and homely sweet which can become your favorite easily :)
Cashew - 1 cup
Raw Rice - 1 cup
Sugar - 1.5 cup
Oil - to deep fry
Soak rice and cashew in water separately for 2 hrs. Now grid each one separately and make sure it is very fine. Finally add both and mix it into a smooth batter. Now add sugar and a little water to it and mix it finely. The batter should be in dosa dough consistency.
Now take oil in a pan(I used non stick pan so that the appa does not stick to the bottom). Once the oil is hot enough, take the batter in a ladle and pour it in the oil in one place without changing the position. The batter would spread equally and form a round shaped appam. Turn once it becomes light golden brown at the ends. Take it out once done on both the sides.
Extremely yummy appam is done. Eat it hot. Its a lovely dish which can make a lunch a rich feast. :) Happy making :)
I am sending this recipe to sweet time event conducted by Shanthi Krishnakumar's cook book.
