Tips and Substitution to make Chakka Paniyaram:

I have blended the jackfruit and coconut for the smooth texture, you can also pulse just for a few seconds to get the grainy texture of the coconut.

To sweeten the appam I have used jaggery and powdered sugar. You can add the only jaggery to sweeten the appam. Make sure to add powdered jaggery, that helps in quick blending and it gets easily dissolved in the batter.

You can also use wholewheat flour instead of all-purpose flour.

Add baking soda just before you make the appam in the pan.

Cook the paniyaram in the ghee for the best flavors and taste.

Don’t make the batter too runny if it is runny add some flour to get the texture.

    What do you mean by 6 jackfruit? Does that mean each piece of fruit with seed in center? Do you use the seed also, or discard seed? Thank you
