Instant Sweet Paddu / Paniyaram


 

Sweet paddu or paniyaram is an easy to make dish ready in no time and tastes absolutely delicious. Making them fills the house with a festive aroma. They are served as offering to deity during festivals. Banana, jaggery, coconut – what’s not to love about this dish!

I have earlier shared the recipe of making the savoury version of paddu/appe, which is made with the dosa batter. But the sweet version is ready instantly and does not need fermentation. They are traditionally made by deep-frying, but these healthier version made in paddu/appe pan tastes equally good. They are one of the easiest desserts I can think of and great for snack time too. Make them and enjoy delicious festive food…
