guliyappa or guliappa, paddu recipe

Sihi appa or sweet paddu recipe explained with step by step pictures. This is a temple style appa or sweet paddu. Appa or sweet paddu is prepared using banana, coconut, jaggery and rice flour. This sweet paddu is also popular by name sweet paniyaram.

I have posted 2 more guliyappa or paddu recipes on this website. The first one is the normal paddu and the second one is sabsige soppu or dill leaves paddu.. But unlike these 2 paddu recipes, this is an instant and sweet recipe. No need to ferment the batter.

This type of appa is prepared in temples at my native. People will pay money and opt for "appa seve" (offering sweet paddu to God). This appa is very tasty and I love them so much. You can either deep fry them or prepare in appe pan or paddu pan. Deep fried appa tastes better. But if you want to avoid deep frying (like me) then prepare it using paddu pan.

You can find many banana recipes on this website like banana halwa, banana buns, banana milkshake, banana dosa and banana chips recipes.
