How To make Ney Appam? | Instant Ney Appam Recipe

Ney Appam, also known as Unniyappam, is a popular sweet dish from the state of Kerala in India. It is a delicious and nutritious snack that is traditionally prepared during festivals and special occasions. Ney Appam is made from rice flour, jaggery, and banana, which are all easily available in any grocery store. 

Here’s a recipe for Ney Appam that you can try at home:


  • 1 cup of raw rice
  • ½ cup of grated jaggery
  • 1 ripe banana
  • ½ teaspoon of cardamom powder
  • 1 tablespoon of ghee
  • ½ cup of water
  • Oil for frying


  • Rinse the raw rice and soak it in water for 4-5 hours. Drain the water and grind the rice to a smooth batter in a blender or grinder. Add ½ cup of water to the rice while grinding.
  • Mash the ripe banana and add it to the rice batter. Mix well.
  • Add grated jaggery to the batter and mix well. Ensure that the jaggery is well mixed into the batter.
  • Add cardamom powder and a tablespoon of ghee to the batter and mix well. Let the batter rest for 30 minutes.
  • Heat a paniyaram pan or an appam pan over medium heat. Add a few drops of oil in each cavity of the pan.
  • Once the pan is heated, pour the batter into the cavities of the pan using a ladle. Do not fill the cavities completely as the appams will puff up when they are cooking.
  • Cook the appams for 2-3 minutes on one side until they turn golden brown. Flip the appams over and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove the appams from the pan using a skewer or a fork.
  • Serve the Ney Appams hot with tea or coffee.


  • Ensure that the batter is not too thick or too thin. It should have a pouring consistency.
  • Use ripe bananas for best results. 
  • You can add grated coconut to the batter for extra flavor.
  • If you do not have a paniyaram pan or an appam pan, you can use a regular frying pan to make the appams.
  • You can store the Ney Appams in an airtight container for up to two days.


Ney Appams are a great snack that you can enjoy any time of the day. They are easy to make and require only a few ingredients that are readily available in any grocery store. Try this recipe at home and enjoy the delicious taste of Kerala cuisine.
