Instant Unniyappam using Rice flour | Easy Snack Recipes


I have posted an Unniyappam recipe recently,then why another one,is that what you are thinking? Well,that one is a traditional recipe which uses soaked and ground rice and takes a while to prepare(not active cooking time)but this one gets done in a jiffy.All of us are looking for something tasty and healthy to feed our family during these trying times when anything store bought is partially or completely avoided.


I have seen many recipes which use rice flour instead of ground rice to make this Unniyappam and this is my take on it.I just substituted the regular recipe with some rice flour along with maida/apf for the softness,most other ingredients are the same.


For flavoring the Unniyappam the prime ingredient is banana,the small variety named Palayankodan/Rasakadali.But these days any fruit puree is added instead of banana and it sounds delicious isn't it?Imagine a Mango Unniyappam using mango puree..it definitely is on my to-do list!Here I have added a bit of Chakka varatty/Jackfruit preserve along with banana,but you can completely skip it if you don't have it or want to add it.

Instant Unniyappam using Rice Flour

Ingredient

Rice flour - 1 cup (you can use readymade Idiyappam/Pathiri/Appam flour)
Maida/APF - 1/2 cup(you can substitute with WWF/Atta)
Jaggery - 1 cup,grated
Banana - 2 small
Chakka Varatty/Jackfruit Preserve - 1 tbsp
Cardamom - 1
Baking soda - 1/4 tsp
A pinch of salt
Ghee- 1 tbsp
Grated coconut - 2 tbsp(you can use sliced coconut as well)
Black sesame seeds/Til - 1 tsp
Coconut oil to make the Unniyappams

Method

Add the grated jaggery and 1/4 cup water to a pan and let it boil.When the jaggery is completely dissolved and the syrup starts boiling,simmer for 2-3 minutes and then switch off the flame and strain it through a metal strainer.We need about 3/4 cup of jaggery syrup for the recipe.
Into a mixer jar add the rice flour,maida,jaggery syrup,chakka varatty,cardamom,salt and baking soda and banana.Grind to a smooth paste.
Remove the batter into a container.
In a pan,heat ghee and saute the coconut till golden.Mix in til.Add this to the Unniyappam batter and mix well.Rest the batter for 30 minutes.
In a paniyaram pan/Unniyappa chatti add coconut oil,enough to fill the pan.Pour the batter using a ladle and cook in medium flame till the unniyappam turns golden brown.Flip and cook the other side.
Make sure the flame is medium for even cooking.
