Wash and soak raw rice for 4 to5 hours and drain it.
Heat jaggery in a sauce pan adding 1/4cup of water allow it to melt,strain it to remove impurities and keep aside.
In a blender add soaked rice,peeled bananas and melted jaggery and grind slightly coarse paste.(The consistency of the batter should not be too thin nor too thick,so adjust accordingly).
Heat ghee in a pan add coconut bits (thenga kothu) and fry until golden brown and set aside.
In a bowl add ground rice batter,cardamom powder,dry ginger powder,cumin powder,salt and fried coconut bits along with ghee then combine well and keep aside for 3 to 4 hours.
Heat unniyappam pan (paniyaram pan) pour coconut oil into each mould,When the oil become hot,reduce the flame and fill the mould with the batter (fill only up to 3/4th of the mould)and fry.
When the bottom starts browning,flip it over to the other side with a skewer. Let the other side get cooked until golden brown,remove from the pan and drain on kitchen towel.Repeat the same process for the remaining batter.
Soft and tasty unniyappam is ready! Enjoy with tea or coffee !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
