ABOUT Honey Makka Cholam / Jowar Nei Appam RECIPE

Neiappam is one of the important naivedyam for almost all auspicious occasions in South India. Traditionally this is prepared with raw rice and jaggery, but I have prepared these traditional neyyappams by adding honey along with jaggery and healthy jowar / makka cholam flour. Try out this and enjoy.
