How To make Chocolate Appo? | Instant Chocolate Appo Recipe

Chocolate appo is a delicious and easy-to-make snack that is perfect for any time of the day. This dish is a popular street food in India and is loved by people of all ages. It is a sweet version of appo or paniyaram, which is typically made with rice and lentil batter. In this recipe, we will be using a combination of semolina, flour, and cocoa powder to create a fluffy and chocolaty appo. 

Here is the list of step to make Chocolate Appo at home 


  • 1 cup semolina
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup curd/yogurt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • Oil or ghee for greasing


  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the semolina, all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well.
  • Add the curd/yogurt, milk, water, vanilla extract, and melted butter to the dry ingredients. Mix well to form a smooth batter.
  • Cover the bowl with a lid or plastic wrap and let the batter rest for 10-15 minutes. This allows the batter to ferment slightly and results in a fluffier appo.
  • Heat a paniyaram/appo pan on medium heat. Once the pan is hot, grease each of the molds with a few drops of oil or ghee.
  • Pour about 1 tablespoon of batter into each mold. Cover the pan with a lid and let the appos cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Once the appos start to turn golden brown on the bottom, use a skewer or spoon to flip them over. Cook for another 1-2 minutes on the other side.
  • Once the appos are cooked through and golden brown on both sides, remove them from the pan and place them on a plate.
  • Repeat the process with the remaining batter, greasing the pan between batches as needed.
  • Serve the chocolate appo warm with a dusting of powdered sugar or a drizzle of chocolate syrup.


  • If you don’t have a paniyaram/appo pan, you can use a regular non-stick pan to make these appos. Just use a spoon to drop the batter into the hot pan and shape it into a round ball.
  • You can adjust the amount of sugar in this recipe based on your personal preference. You can also substitute jaggery or honey for the sugar for a healthier version of this dish.
  • You can also add chopped nuts, raisins, or chocolate chips to the batter for added texture and flavor.
  • Make sure to use a good quality cocoa powder for the best results.
  • Leftover appos can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. To reheat, just microwave them for a few seconds or toast them in a pan until they are warm and crispy again.
  • Enjoy your delicious chocolate appos as a sweet snack or breakfast item. This recipe is sure to become a favorite among your family and friends!
