பரங்கி அப்பம்
This is a tasty appam. I have learnt this from my mother’s cookery book. It is very easy to prepare!

Raw rice- half cup
Ghee- 2 tbsp
Shredded yellow pumpkin-half cup
Shredded coconut- half cup
Cashew nuts-8
Powdered jagerry- half cup
Cardamom powder- half sp
Enough oil to fry


Soak the raw rice in enough water for an hour.
Heat a pan and pour the ghee.
Add the shredded pumpkin and fry it on a slow fire until it turns in to soft.
Let it cool down for a few minutes.
Grind these with the other ingredients.
1 or 2 tbsp of water is enough to grind them to a thick paste.
Heat a pan and pour the oil.
Take a tbsp of the batter and pour it on the oil.
When one side is cooked in to golden brown colour, cook the other side.
Thus finish all the batter.
The delicious sweet pumpkin appam is ready!
