Unni Appam

This one of my favorite next to Kuzhipaniyaram, I usually make this one for prasadam. Unni appam is very famous in Kerala which can be made easily with lesser number of ingredients.I made this one for the first day of navarathri pooja.


Raw rice 1cup
Maida 1/4cup
Jaggery 3/4cup
Banana(ripe)1no.(big size)
Cooking sodaa pinch
Salta pinch
Ghee+oilto cook


           Soak the rice in the water for atleast 2 hours,grind it to a fine batter along with elaichi and a pinch of salt.Add the maida,melted jaggery to the rice batter and mix it well without any lumps.

Add a pinch of cooking soda,mashed banana and stir it.The batter should be in dosa batter consistency.

Heat the Paniyaram pan in a medium flame,add half a tsp of both oil and ghee.Once the pan is ready, pour in a spoon of batter to each mould and cook it.

Flip it to other side with a help of skewer or a spoon and cook it for a minute.Once its browned all the sides,take it out.

Unni appam is ready to serve.

  • Chopped and ghee fried coconut pieces can be added to the batter gives an extra taste.
  • Rice flour can be used and maida can be substituted with wheat flour.
  • Cooking in the medium flame gives a nice brown colored appams.
