Unniyappam is a traditional, tasty and popular snack of Kerala (south India). This is prepared during festival and feasts and served as praised in temples. They are basically sweet fritters made with banana and rice flour. Its is gluten free and vegan recipe.

Unni means small and appam means rice cake. Unni appam is prepared from rice, jaggery, banana, cardamom powder, ghee and coconut pieces.

For making unni appam you need special vessel/ebelskiver/ paniyaram moulds. Bananas and cardamom powder with small bits of coconut pieces fried in ghee brings out a unique taste and flavour. My whole family loves this snack, especially my son and it is our favourite snack.
