Unni Appam

Recipe For Unni Appam


  • Rice flour - 1 cup
  • Wheat flour - 2 tbsp
  • Ripened Banana - 2 or 3
  • Brown sugar - 1/2 cup
  • cardamom powder - 3/4 tsp
  • Baking Powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Toasted sesame seeds- 2 tsp


  1. Blend the banana nicely using a blender or mixie.
  2. Add rice flour , wheat flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cardamom and blend it together. Add the sesame seeds to batter.
  3. The consistency of the batter should be little thicker than the idli batter.
  4. Heat the paniyaram griddle(puffed pancake griddle-made of cast Iron).
  5. Add few drops of oil to each hole and pour the batter.
  6. When the edges turns golden brown flip it,so that the other side will cook.
  7. Allow it to cook on medium heat for another couple of minutes. If the heat is too high, the outside will get browned up too fast before the inside is cooked.
  8. When the unniappam is done, it is like a ball and comes out easily from the griddle. Yummy unniappam is ready to serve.

Serving Suggestion

  • Server the warm unni appam as an evening snack with a hot cup of tea or coffee.
  • You can even have unniyappam as breakfast.

Hi Nitu, This pan is specially for making paniyaarams. The other dishes you could make with this are urad dal bonda, low fat manchurian balls etc. Unfortunately you cannot make idlis in this pan as idlis are steam cooked. This pan would fry it and make it like Rava Paniyaarams.
