Unniyappam is a traditional styled sweet snack, very popular in Kerala Cuisine. Unniyappam is a small round snack made from rice flour, jaggery, ripe banana, roasted coconut pieces and finally fried in oil. It is actually Kerala version of Sweet Kuzhi Paniyaram. In Malayalam language, ‘unni’ denotes small and ‘appam’ denotes rice cake. The sweet snack is unique and tasty with a flavorful banana mixture poured into moulds and cooked on both sides. The dish is healthy and kids love unniyappam.
