• Raw Rice - 1 cup
  • Light brown sugar or jaggery - 1 cup (or 3/4 cup for dark brown sugar)
  • Banana - 1
  • Coconut - 1/2 cup shredded
  • Cardamom powder - 1 tsp
  • Ghee - as required
How to make it:

Soak rice for about 1 1/2 hours with enough water. Drain the water. Grind rice, brown sugar, banana, coconut and cardamom powder with very little water in a blender until smooth. It should be in the consistency of thick dosa batter. Heat kuzhi-appam pan on medium heat. Pour a teaspoon of ghee and pour the batter until full. Cook for 2 minutes. Turn to the other side carefully, add more ghee if required and cook until done.
