How To make Banana Appam? | Instant Banana Appam Recipe

Banana Appam is a traditional South Indian recipe that is prepared by mixing overripe bananas with rice flour and jaggery. This sweet and fluffy delicacy is perfect for breakfast or as a snack. 

Here is a breakfast recipe that is easy to prepare and delicious to eat.


  • 2 cups of Rice Flour
  • 1 cup of Jaggery
  • 3 ripe Bananas
  • 1/4 cup of Grated Coconut
  • 1/2 tsp of Cardamom Powder
  • 1/2 tsp of Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp of Salt
  • Ghee or Oil for frying


  • In a mixing bowl, add 2 cups of rice flour, 1/2 tsp of baking soda, and 1/2 tsp of salt. Mix well and keep aside.
  • In another bowl, mash 3 ripe bananas using a fork or a masher.
  • Add 1 cup of jaggery to the mashed bananas and mix well until it dissolves completely.
  • Add 1/4 cup of grated coconut and 1/2 tsp of cardamom powder to the banana-jaggery mixture and mix well.
  • Add the rice flour mixture to the banana-jaggery mixture in small batches and mix well until a smooth batter is formed. The batter should be of pouring consistency. Add water if required.
  • Keep the batter aside for 10-15 minutes to rest.
  • Heat a paniyaram pan or an appam pan on medium flame. Add a few drops of ghee or oil in each cavity.
  • Once the pan is hot, pour a spoonful of batter in each cavity. The batter will rise slightly, so don’t overfill the cavity.
  • Cover the pan with a lid and cook for 2-3 minutes on medium flame.
  • Once the appam turns golden brown on the bottom, flip it over using a spoon or a skewer.
  • Cook the other side for another 2-3 minutes until it turns golden brown.
  • Remove the appam from the pan and repeat the process with the remaining batter.
  • Serve the banana appam hot with coconut chutney or sambar.


  • Use overripe bananas for better taste and texture.
  • If you don’t have jaggery, you can use brown sugar or regular sugar instead.
  • Don’t overmix the batter, as it may make the appam tough and chewy.
  • You can also add chopped nuts or raisins to the batter for extra flavor and texture.
