Unniyappam


Unniyappam or Kuzhiyappam as these are called are little, sweet,deep-fried dumplings. You need special pans to make these.  As these are very similar to aebleskivers, the popular Dutch pancakes, you can use the aebleskiver pan also to make unniyappams. By investing a little for these pans you can make unniyappams, aebleskivers and spicy paniyarams etc. I shall be posting recipes of those goodies soon.
Ingredients:
Rice flour - 1 cup
All purpose flour- 1/8 cup
Jaggery - 1/2 cup
Small banana - 4 nos
Grated coconut - 1/4 cup
Cardamom - 5, finely powdered
Salt - 1/8 tsp
Ghee - 1 tsp
Baking soda (optional) - a pinch
Black sesame seeds - 1 tsp

Method:
Make a syrup of the jaggery using 1/4 cup of water and strain it to remove any impurities. (if jaggery is not available, you may substitute it with brown sugar). Mash the banana and add the rest of the ingredients to this. Add enough water and mix it well to get pancake batter consistency. Set aside for 1/2 hr. Take an unniappam chatti (or an aebleskiver pan) and fill all the indentations half way with vegetable oil (or coconut oil). Once the oil is hot, pour the batter into each of the indentations and reduce the heat to medium.  Once the appams bottom starts to turn golden turn it around. Once it is evenly cooked all over, take it out of the pan with a skewer and let it drain on a paper towel. You may sprinkle some sugar over the appams once it cools, for added taste.
