You can add a pinch of baking soda.

If you have time rest the batter for 2 hours and then make it.

For babies below one year use slightly diluted dates syrup instead of jaggery.

Adjust water as per batter thickness. The batter should not be too thick or too flowy.

The colour depends on the jaggery used.

You can also fry it in oil as I have shown in INSTANT WHEAT FLOUR SWEET APPAM | GODHUMAI APPAM.

Use ghee as much as possible in the paniyaram pan. It just adds on flavour.

Please have a word with your doctor before introducing any new food to babies.
