With New Year's Celebrations and Holi gone, the calendar is going to remain festival-dry for the upcoming weeks. But then there is something called self-pampering, something that does not need an appointment on the calendar to arrive at your doorstep. And it is towards this self-pampering that our current article is aimed.

Indians are known to have a sweet tooth, one that does not see which time of the day or the month of the year it is - it just needs to be fed. So in case, your sweet tooth is still not over the New Year Celebrations, here are five recipes from trusted chefs that you could whip up! Don't forget to add our sulphur-free, processed with fine craftsmanship, Madhur Sugar.

Ney Appam

This recipe comes from the south - it's a sweet fried rice-based dish, whose name can be broken down into 'nei,' which means ghee, and 'appam,' meaning pancakes. It's one of our favorite snackable desserts!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup Raw Rice
  • 3/4 Cup Jaggery/Sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp Baking Soda
  • Two small Bananas
  • 1/2 tbsp Cardamom Powder
  • 1 tbsp Grated Coconut
  • Ghee/Oil

Steps:

  1. Soak your rice for three hours in water.
  2. Add some jaggery to water and continue mixing till the jaggery melts. Strain this syrup and keep it on the side.
  3. Now drain the rice and mix it with the jaggery syrup to form a fine paste.
  4. Now add the bananas to the rice and jaggery mix till the paste is well mixed. The consistency should be a little thicker than dosa batter.
  5. Add the grated coconut and cardamom powder to the batter.
  6. Let the batter ferment for two hours.
  7. Before frying, add baking soda to the mix.
  8. It's time to heat your appam pan - pour 1 tbsp ghee/oil in each hole and then pour your batter. When one side is cooked, flip over to the other one.
  9. Cook until both sides are dark brown.
  10. It's ready to be served, hot and sweet!
