I love to eat Unniyappam with my hot Coffee in the evening …….. Its a snack which takes me back to my home …………. according to Me , my Mom makes the best Unniyappam in whole Kerala …..Her recipe is little different from other recipes ……I had seen recipes call for Banana in the batter , but in this particular recipe there is no Banana …………… She never used Banana in the batter , but still her Unniyappam will be very moist & soft ………….
