Arisi (Rice) Appam/Nei Appam



Ingredients

Raw Rice:1 cup
Toor dhal (optional):1 tsp 
Grated jaggery:1 cup
Ripe Banana:1
Cardomom:4 pods
Oil/Ghee :                                to fry
Grated coconut  (optional) :2 tablespoon
Procedure:
Step1:
Soak rice and dhal together for atleast 1 hour
Nei Appam


Step2:
Drain the water and grind the rice in mixie/blender without adding water. 
Once jaggery is added, the batter will become more watery


Step3:
Once it becomes coarse, add the jaggery and grind it until it becomes smooth.
Nei Appam




Step4:
Add the mashed banana and cardomom seeds and grind until everything mixes well.
Add the grated coconut as well


Step5:
Pour about 1 tsp of oil in each kuzhi in the paniyaram pan
Nei Appam


Step6:
Pour 1 tsp of batter in each of them.Make sure you fill only 3/4 of the kuzhi with batter.
Nei Appam


Step7:
Flip the sides and fry until golden brown

Notes:
Do not add water while grinding rice.
The batter consistency should be like dosa batter. If it is very watery can add rice flour
Always fry in the medium flame 
Use ghee for frying for enhanced taste and flavor
If prepared without adding coconut, this will stay good for atleast 3 days (have not tested beyond that :-)

  8. Appan and paniyaram are same or what? We used to prepare paniyaram similar to this way. Rice appams are tempting much.
