Instant nei appam recipe

Instant nei appam with rice flour without any soaking time. Learn how to prepare quick and easy nei appam with just few basic ingredients.
I have not tried nei appam with rice flour earlier, somehow had no idea one can make it instantly with rice flour. But have seen various versions in other blogs. For karthigai deepam, I wanted to post this atleast on the day when I make nei appam. I did click when I made this friday, but since I am using my mobile data, I was not able to post as I had poor connection. I hope I will be regular in posting from this week.

Coming to this instant nei appam, this is super hit recipe by Laxmi, among our Singapore Instagrammers group. I have tasted this recently when we had a small lunch get together, she brought this nei appam and it was out of the world. I never thought an instant version could be so yummy. So that time itself I decided that I should get recipe from her and post. She too sent it right away before I asked😍. Thank you so much Laxmi for sharing the recipe. Do we need festival occasions to make nei appam😋?

Instant nei appam recipe

Recipe ingredients:

Rice flour – 1 cup
Jaggery, powdered – 3/4 cup
or
Brown sugar – 1 cup
Banana, overripe – 1
Wheat flour – 2 tbsp
Cardamom – 1
Cooking soda – 1 pinch
Salt – a pinch

Method

  1. In a blender, place banana, jaggery or brown sugar, cardamom, salt  and grind smoothly.
  2. Add rice flour and wheat flour to it along with cooking soda and blend again.
  3. Transfer to the bowl. Heat appe pan/ paniyaram pan and generously dizzle with ghee.
  4. Pour the batter in the shallows (kuzhi) and cook covered in medium flame.
  5. Flip and cook again to cook until golden on both sides. Add ghee more on top if desired.


Notes

  • Overripe banana works best as it gives necessary softness, water to the batter.
  • I used long variety, it was not overripe so had to add some water. The batter should be like the idli dosa batter. If too thick add water accordingly.
  • If deep frying, no need to add cooking soda. Or if you want to skip soda, make it smaller so that inside of the appam gets cooked.
  • Use two banana if you use the small variety. 
  • Cook in medium or low flame to ensure inside of the appam gets cooked.
  • If using jaggery, powder roughly and then measure.
