How to make Unniappams
Raw Rice – 1 cup
Jaggery -1 cup + 2 tbsp
Banana – 1 (medium size)
Cardamom powder – a generous pinch
Coconut bits -3 tbsp
Roasted Sesame seeds – 1/2 tsp
Cooking soda – a pinch
Oil and ghee for cooking appams
Paniyaram pan or appa chatti
Wash and soak rice overnight or for 5-6 hours.
When the bottom starts browning, flip it over to the other side with a spoon or a skewer.
Let the other side get cooked uncovered until golden brown. Once cooked, remove and drain on a kitchen towel.
Repeat the same process for the rest of the batter.
Note- You will get soft unniyappams only if rice is soaked for so long and fermented.

In a bowl, mix together rice flour and wheat flour.
Add chopped banana to it and mash it well.

hi should i grind the rice, banana & jaggery together n leave it for fermentation or i will grinding the rice n jaggery together n add banana only before frying unniappams?
Can i use palm jaggery (Karupetti) instead of jaggery??
Anitha -For the first method -Grind rice alone and leave it for fermentation, then add jaggery, banana and other ingredients at the time of making unniappams. You can add palm jaggery though I have not tried it.
They look great! Do they need refrigeration or can they be kept outside for a couple of days?
Yes, they can be kept outside for a day or two – not more than that.
