  1. We like appalu but i am not able to make consistently in a right way. Appalu photo tempting me to do a trial. But i have a few doubts and after getting reply from you, i want to do a trial so that i can keep this recipe permanently .

    1.In the recipe text it was mentioned 1/4 cup oil has to be added to the mixture. Is this has to be done when mixture is on low flame or outside after removing from flame.

    2. The oil which we are adding to the mixture is already heated oil or Raw oil ???

    3. Normally in our houses Cardamom powder also we will add to get good taste and in this not mentioned.

    Hope i get reply from you.

  2. Manjula, I have just discovered your site and I have already prepared three dishes (blacke eyed beans, mango crush and potatoes coconut dish) all delicious. I have slightly changed the recipe but your lessons live are really great and very well disscribed. Well done!
    PS: I am french but my husband of 30 years is Indian, and he just loves the new recipes thanks to you!

  3. I am sorry to say but mine turned out rubbery and tough. This is the reason sometimes people don’t try the recipes from website. I had to throw away the dough and what a waste of time.

  4. hi sereesha,
    I have lived in Hyderabad for 10 years and never heard of appalu until I got married to my husband who was born in Karimnagar. His family makes this in large quantities, only they call it Happalu and they do not use any wheat flour ( i think!!) Any way thanks for the recipe, I never thought I’d ever find it online!!

  5. In Guyana, we make a similar recipe called paanyaarow. Made with only rice flour, and we fry it in ghee. And im guessing jaggery is like brown sugar?

  6. This looks so yummy and my family love this sweet too.Since long before i was searching for this recipe and will definitely try that.
    Thank you.
