Raw Rice/Idli rice - 1 cup
Vellam/Jaggery - 1 cup (If you like more sweet can add little extra)
Ripe Banana - 1 no(If you dont have riped one can used normal one too)
Cardamom Powder - a pinch
Oil as required
Wash and soak rice in water for 3-4 hours.
Grind rice for 1-2 rounds in mixie, then add jaggery, banana and grind to smooth paste.
Transfer it to a bowl and leave it for 5-7 hours.(I left it overnight)
Add cardamom powder and mix well.
Heat a non stick Appam Chetti or Kuzhipaniyaram Chetti, with 1 tspn oil each.
Pour batter to 3/4th of the chetti. Reduce flame to medium low otherwise it becomes black.
Cook and turn the overside and cook till its dark brown.
I used Tikka sticks. You can also use fork to turn them.
Super soft Banana Appam is ready to serve.
Notes - If you want, can make mini appams by just pouring half the Kuzhi. It will be loved by Kids.
