Karthigai Appam or Nei Appam or Unni Appam or Sweet Paniyaram

Hi all!
Today I’m very happy in posting the recipe of Karthigai Appam or Nei Appam or Unni Appam or Sweet Paniyaram,
which owes its origins to Kerala. In Malayalam, unni means small and appam means rice cake. This is festive sweet, made on Gokulashtami, the birthday of Hindu deity, Lord Krishna. These appams are soft, spongy, super tasty and irresistible!! :-)

The Unni Appam is made out of a fermented batter of rice, jaggery, banana, grated coconut and cardamom powder. It is then poured into a vessel called Appakarai or Appakaram, which has ghee heated to a high temperature. These appams take the shape of small cups, and are fried until deep brown. Variations of the appam  also include using jackfruit preserves instead of banana. 

They are usually eaten as snacks in Kerala and are also served as prashad ( offerings to God ) in temples.

So, prepare soft, spongy and super tasty appams for your loved ones and I’m sure that they are gonna enjoyyyy it!! :-)
