A festival brings an element of excitement and surprise with it. How about setting a surprise for your little ones wrapped in an innocent looking pathiri? As the name suggests, this appam is like a petti - a box - in which we keep what we cherish, like this creamy, buttery meat filling.

1/2 cup chopped cabbage

1/2 cup chopped beans

1/2 cup chopped carrot
