Sooji appam is prepared using sooji mixed with veggies and tadka . Eno adding a crispy delight to it making it a complete breakfast.
This morning I was in mood of making something quick and healthy for breakfast . Did some research about variety of appam you can make . Earlier too I had done different types of appam and every time my family likes them.
This time thought of making appam using sooji(Rawa) since we are bored of eating upama and wanted some innovative breakfast idea . I had a lot of work to do today, so thought of making something quick and tasty to calm our morning hunger .:) . I served them with Kerala style coconut red chutney. The recipe will be posted on my blog soon.
