Unniappam is one of the pride recipes in Kerala. You could find unniappams in most Iyyapan temples. I would definitely bet no one would miss having it once in their lifetime.I still remember the moments when I receive the prasadam a banana leaf a unniappam and paal payisam in Krishnan temple. My Amma is specialist in preparing the unniappam. I agree that it may not be unique sweet recipe but have you heard about Mambazha Unniappam??? And have you ever tasted this??

It is very easy to make and much tasty as well. All you need is just the ripped mango and wheat flour and a pan(appachati in tamil its paniyara chatti) . I always use to think making the unniappam is really a tedious process, but then after making I realized that was wrong!!! Normally This is made mostly during Vishu festival, however could not stop myself cooking it after I spoke to my Ammuma as she just made it :) Here you go with the making part.


  • Wheat Flour- ¼ Cup
  • Ripped Mango Pulp- ½ Cup
  • Rava- 1 Tspn
  • Rice Flour- 1 Tspn
  • Elachi powder- ½ Tspn
  • Coconut pieces- few
  • Ghee or Oil- To Roast.


  • Mix all the ingredients except oil/ghee and coconut pieces in a bowl and make a batter(just like dosa batter)
  • Fry the coconut pieces in ghee and mix the roasted coconut pieces to the batter.
  • Pour oil or ghee in the holes in the pan.
  • After the pan turns heat(keep the flame as low) pour the batter to the oil filled holes.
  • Fry by flipping both the sides.
  • Transfer to a paper towel to remove excess oil and serve hot.

"As this recipe has mango pulp it takes a little more to cook the inside part, hence be patience till it cooked nicely by keeping the flame in low.

If the ripped mango you are using is not so sweet you could some sugar to the batter.

It's a recipe which turns a little dark, hence it doesn’t mean that its been over cooked."
