Nei appam is a traditional South Indian sweet prepared during the festival season.  We use rice flour, jaggery and banana for preparing this delicious sweet.

  2. Grated coconut - 1/2 cup
  3. Jaggery - 1 cup
  4. 1 ripe medium sized banana
  5. Cardamom powder 
  6. A pinch of baking soda (optional)
  7. Ghee for frying

Method :

1.  Soak the rice for atleast 3 hours.  

2.  Grind the rice along with the coconut and banana to smooth paste. Use 3 tbsp of water for grinding.


3.  In a pan, cook the jaggery along with 2 tbsp of water until they melts.  Filter the jaggery water and add them to the rice mixture.  Add some cardamom powder, baking soda (optional) and mix well.  The batter should resemble like idly / pancake batter.
