Neyyappam is a south Indian speciality common in Kerala. These are rice pancakes fried in ghee or oil.  A batter of pouring consistency is made of rice flour and jaggery. Cardamom are added for flavour. Recipe here. Thanks dear Dyuthi Krishna for this yummy recipe.


Raw rice – 3 cups

Maida/all purpose flour – 3 tbsp

Jaggery – 1/2 kg

Banana, small – 3 nos

Baking soda – 1/4 tsp

Coconut pieces/Thengakkothu – 1/2 cup

Ghee – 1 tbsp

Cardamom powder – 1/2 tsp

Oil for fry


Wash raw rice and soak for 4- 6 hours in water. Drain and grind raw rice in a mixer. Do not grind to make a fine powder. The consistency should be that of a puttu flour.

In a pan, add water and jaggery and melt. Pass this syrup through a strainer to remove any dirt. Keep this aside.

Grind banana in a blender.

Heat 1 tbsp ghee in a pan. Fry coconut pieces till light brown in colour.

In a bowl, add rice flour, banana, salt, cardamom powder, maida, fried coconut, baking soda and jaggery syrup. Mix well to make a batter, which resembles dosa batter consistency.

Heat oil in a nonstick pan. Add a ladle full of batter. Lower the flame. Deep fry on both sides until they are crispy.
