Sweet Rava Appam/Sweet Appam with Sooji

Hello Friends,

Today, I am going to share a very elegant and traditional recipe that we especially make on Karthigai Deepam that is none other than Sweet Rava Appam.  This appam though made for neivedhyam during pooja days; can be made as quick snack for kids after school and add a big smaile on their face. We make different types of appam, like wheat flour appam, neiappam etc which I will be updating soon. For now, do try out this quick and easy Sweet Rava Appam and post your comments here. Mean while do check out Diwali Sweets & Snacks and also neivedhyam recipes here.

Here’s how to make Sweet Rava Appam with step by step photos…


1 cup
Maida/All Purpose Flour
½ cup
¾ cup
Cooking Soda [optional]
One pinch
Banana [ripe]
Cardamom/Elachi powder
¼ tsp
For frying
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20-25 minutes 

Soak the rava/Sooji in water for 15 minutes. After that, drain the excess water from the rava.

Blend the banana in mixer to a smooth paste.

Now add maida, sugar, elachi powder, ground banana paste, cooking soda to the soaked rava.

Now mix everything really, add required amount of water and mix to make thick batter. Let the batter sit for 5 minutes.

Heta the kuzhipaniyaram pan, and pour little oil/ghee in all the slots.

Spoon this rava batter into paniyaram mould. Cook for about a minute till the bottom turn gold.

Flip it carefully with a spoon or vadakuthi. Cook on the other side for few more secs. If needed add little oil and cook evenly on both the sides.

Yes, delicious and traditional Sweet Rava Appam in ready to be enjoyed.


I have used kuzhi paniyaram pan to make these appam, you can as well deep fry it in oil. For that heat oil in kadai in medium flame, pour one small ladle of batter in oil, do not flip it immediately. Wait for sometime, let one get cooked, then flip and cook the other side as well. Cook on all sides evenly and drain from oil.
