Method for making Unniappam:
Step 1: Soak the raw rice for 2 hrs.
Step 2: Grind the rice with jaggery,cardamom and banana to a smooth batter like dosa batter .
Step 3: Remove the batter to a dish and keep aside, let it ferment for at least 6 hrs ( I normally grind this at night and will leave it to ferment till morning and and make it morning itself).
Step 4: Just before making the unniappam, add the baking soda and the thinly sliced coconuts, mix well.
Step 4: Heat the Appa Chatti/ Aebleskiver Pan in medium heat add grease with little Oil or Pan.
Step 5: Once its ready pour each whole with little batter and wait for 5 minutes or till the batter is cooked turn and cook till its gets a nice golden brown color.
Step 6: Remove the Unniappams from the Appachatti or Aebleskiver Pan to a tissue and drain the excess oil or ghee from it.
Step 7: This can be served warm or in room temperature. Store it in airtight container and it will be good for 4 days.
