Therali is one of the sweet smelling snack offered to the goddess. Therali appam is usually made during pongala and on festivals like Sivarathri. Rice powder, jaggery, banana, cardamom, grated coconut, ghee and vayana (therali) leaf are the required stuff to make this sweet snack. Mix all the ingredients together with a small amount of water to make the dough. Roll the vayana leaves like a cone and fill them with dough. Steam cook for 20-25 minutes.
