Unniyappam-recipe
Kerala style sweet appam recipe is known as Unniyappam/Neyappam.I have tasted this several times from my neighbour.It looks dark brown in color with sugar coated on it.I love it a lot.When i was thinking of Onam sadya recipes,i reminded this recipe and asked my neighbour Mrs.Prema about it.She told me an easy , no fermentation method which she learnt from her mom.I also referred Kothiyavunu for some tips to get soft unniyappam.I tried it for the first time today and it came out very well.I was able to achieve the same color & taste of my neighbour's unniappam.It tastes crispy outside & soft inside.As my neighbour suggested, i coated all the appam with sugar which is not usually done in Kerala i guess.But it gave an appealing look to the dish Blushing.Also she told me to deep fry the appam but i did it in my paniyaram pan to get a nice shape.I gave some of them to my friends and everybody liked it a lot.I am sure Sendhil would love it too.Thanks to my neighbour for teaching me this yummy sweet appam recipeHappy.Try this dish for Onam festival.I am sure u will love it like us.Lets see how to make this kerala style unniyappam recipe in detail.
