I made these Pani Appa for my niece who requested me to make them for her. They really enjoyed them. Its really simple and easy make and waiting time is less when add yeast and leave in a  warm place. it activates quickly. You can use jaggery, treacle or brown sugar.

I am using Kithul palm treacle only with 1/2 tsp salt, enough salt to your taste, and just a pinch of baking soda or Appa soda.  You can totally omit baking soda from the recipe…. Instead of using treacle you can always use brown sugar. Add brown sugar to your taste. I added 1 cup treacle to 500g flour.

Put a hopper pan on the stove and add a drop of oil. (I always use sesame oil) Sesame oil helps to release the hopper out from the pan easily.

Use clean cloth or a paper towel and wipe the oil. Use that for wiping the hopper pan every time you take a hopper out.
