Uniappam ( Mini Pancakes)

I am just waiting for my summer classes to get over, so that I can devote all my time to blogging. I will be done with my classes by August 10th and I will have all my time to read blogs. Coming to the recipe now, Appam comes in different varieties, from the noodles idiappam to the ultra-sweet uniappam. My mom makes uniappam in different ways - with rice flour, rava flour, and wheat flour. During my school and college days, this was one recipe I yearn to eat after classes. My mom makes this snack quite often, for one reason it is very easy to make:) I usually make uniappam with wheat rava and rice flour. Here goes the recipe!!


  • Take 1 cup of wheat rava, ½ cup of rice flour, ½ cup of jaggery/brown sugar, and 2 cardamoms, 1 ripe banana. Grind everything to a paste by adding ½ cup of water, or you can mix everything with help of your hand to a paste or to a batter consistency.

  • Heat the uniappam kal/paniyaram kal (and apply oil in each slot (cast-iron surface heats slowly and it will take some time) once the cast iron is heated, pour the batter into the slot and let it get cooked. Do not cover the cast iron. Once it is cooked, flip over to the other side and cook for few more minutes. Serve hot with tea:) you can also store uniappam in a container for few days.

Hello priya, I have blogged about unniyappam too! I was missing it a lot and bought a pan from amazon. Have no idea how many times I have made this within this two months. Haven't tried it with wheat rawa. I will try it next time.
