Unniyappam (Unni=Small; Appam=Rice cake) or sweet banana fritters is super duper snack in kerala. The ever tastier fritters with banana and jaggery will give you energetic treat. Unniyappam is usually made from rice, jaggery and banana with adds of coconut bits, sesame seeds and ghee. But here, I tried the simpler version of unniappam with rice flour and wheat flour with jaggery syrup.  Its really came out good and aroma of banana.
