Godache Aappey

Wish you all a very happy Ganesh Chaturthi.
May the Vighnaharta remove all the obstacles from our life.


This is a very simple recipe from my mom. I made these yesterday for naivedya for lord Ganesha. I am keeping Ganapati Bappa for 5 days and everyday I am making one sweet dish. For Sunday I made Modak & Sesame Laddu & today I made Appam & coconut milk. Today I will be making Naarali Bhat. I will post the recipe later. Now here is the recipe for Gode Aappey.

What you need:

1 Cup fresh/frozen Coconut,
1 Cup Jaggery
1.5 cups Coarse Rava/Sooji/Bombay Rava
1 Tbsp Roasted Peanuts
Ghee for frying

What to do:

Lightly dry roast rava. In a mixing bowl, take coconut & grated jaggery. Mash both of them together. Add the peanuts & rava. Soak everything together. If you feel this is of not dropping consistency add little milk to the mixture. Keep this aside for 3-4 hours.

After 3-4 hours, heat the appey patra and half fill the cavities with ghee. When the ghee is hot, add a spoonful of the above mixture and cover.

After 2-3 minutes remove the lid, if you see the sides of the appey has turned brown, turn them upside down with a knitting needle or a chopstick. Let the appey cook on the other side.

Once done remove from the patra & serve. You can keep these appey for 3-4 days also.
