Appam is one of the important naivedhyam dish for Krishna Jayanthi festival. Nei Appam is one of the famous dish in Kerala. We usually make nei appam for many occasions.
Traditionally we prepare nei appams/ kuzhi paniyarams with rice flour. For a change I have prepared nei appams/kuzhi paniyarams with samba wheat rava with coconut milk which is healthier and easier too. Try this and enjoy this Krishna Jayanthi with this samba wheat rava nei appams.
