Jowar Aappam / Sorghum Appam / White Cholam Aapam | Jowar Recipes

Appam is a weekly once dish in my house. I have already put many appam varieties like Appam with Coconut Milk, Egg Aappam, Beetroot Aappam, Ballon Vine Appam, PalakAppam.  This aappam made with jowar/sorchum/cholam which I saw in a blog (here). I have tried it and it came out well. I strongly recommend for you too to try.
