Coconut Banana Fritters

By: Archana Kitchen
Region: Indian
Dish:Vegetarian - Breakfast/Tiffins/Snacks
Servings: 5
Time to Prepare: 1 Hr


1 cup raw rice

1 cup powdered jaggery

1 cup of ripe banana, mashed

1/2 cup of grated coconut

3 teaspoons of cardamom powder

oil or ghee for cooking


To begin making the appam, wash and soak the rice in water for 2 hours. Strain the water completely. Using a blender, grind the rice with very little water to a thick batter.

Melt the jaggery with about 1/4 cup of water. Stir in the jaggery syrup, mashed bananas, coconut and cardamom powder to the rice batter. Make sure all the ingredients are well combined into the batter.

The appam batter should be of thick pouring consistency.

Now, heat a paniyaaram pan (a pan with cup shaped depressions). Add a teaspooon of oil or ghee to each depression. Now droop in a large spoonfull of appam batter into each depression. Allow it to cook for a few minutes until you notice that the top is getting steamed.

Turn over after a few minutes to cook on the other side. Cook the appam on medium heat, as you want the batter to get cooked evenly from the inside as well.

Once the appam is browed well and crisp on both sides, remove from the pan and serve hot.

Serve the Appams (Coconut Banana Fritters) as a tea time snack or even as a school snack box for kids.


Appam is a delicious dish prepared during the festival Karthigai deepam in Tamil Nadu. This crispy appam or fritter is a famous Palakkad sweet made with bananas and rice flour batter, that is a favorite among children.
