Traditional nei appam we make for festivals like krishna jayanthi, karthigai deepam, are made with rice. But we can also make delicious appam using semolina. This semolina based appam is crispy outside and soft and fluffy inside. This is also one of the neivedhyam dish many people make for festivals. This semolina appam( Rava Appam) is simpler and easy to make. Kids especially love this yummy sweet. I should have published this recipe well before, during Krishna Jayanthi or Thirukarthigai festivals. But somehow, I missed it. As Margazhi month is approaching, I made this video today. As there are lots of auspicious days in this auspicious month Margazhi, this is one of the neivedhyam dish we can make.
