  • 2 cups Rice flour
  • 1 cup Melted jaggery,unrefined cane sugar/palm sugar (honey like consistency) 
  • 4 Tbsp Mashed bananas
  • 1 tsp Cardamom powder
  • 2 Tbsp Grated/Chopped coconut
  • 1 tsp Ginger powder (optional for extra flavor)
  • Ghee
  • Water – as required to loosen the batter and melt the jaggery
  • You will need an appam or Danish Æbleskiver pan : See info

  • In a bowl, add the  coconut, cardamom powder,  ginger powder (if using) and bananas. Melt the jaggery, with  water, to honey-like consistency and pour into the flour mixture. Mix well and add water to make a batter that resembles idli batter.
  • Heat the appam/Æbleskiver pan, pour oil to fill ¼ of each cavity.
  • When hot, pour about a tablespoon of batter into each cavity and let it cook well (about 2 minutes or until it turns brown). Turn it over and let the other side cook too.
  • Remove onto a paper towel and let the oil drain. Once it cools down, refrigerate in an air-tight container.
