In konkani(Goa) the appe/appam are called "Ellappe" will post the Goan Ellappe recipe soon.
These delicate golden brown spongy balls cooked in the Appe pan are a treat not only for kids but for grown ups too ;) My kids love any variety of appe but their favourite are these dainty pancake puffs.
- Heat the Appe pan on medium heat.
- Pour a spoon full of the pancake batter in the indents of the pan.
- Let cook for a couple of minutes then flip to the other side and let cook for a minute on the other side.
- Take out of the pan.
- Enjoy sprinkled with icing sugar or drenched in maple syrup.
Sometimes I make savoury puffs using same pancake batter but add whatever seasoning I want like, chopped onion,grated carrots, minced green chilly, chopped coriander leaves , etc.
I have a nonstick Appe pan, so I do not use any oil to grease the indents of the pan.
