Kuzhipaniyaram is a traditional south indian snack variety. This can either be made sweet or spicy. Here what I have given is the sweet version! It is known by many names Unniappam (malayalam), Guntha Ponganalu (Telugu).


Number of serving: 8
Wheat flour – 1/2 cup

Maida – 1/2 cup

Rice flour – 1/4 cup

Ripped Bananas – 3 medium sized

Cardamom powder – 1/2 tsp

Dry ginger powder – 3/4 tsp (optional)

Cashew nuts – 5 to 6 (broken)

Baking soda – a pinch

Salt – a pinch

Jaggery - 3/4 cup

Water – (to prepare batter)


  • In a pan, mix jaggery and water and boil till the jaggery melts and filter to remove impurities if any. Keep aside.

    In a separate pan, mash the bananas; start adding all the ingredients except jaggery syrup and water.

    Pour filtered jaggery syrup over the flour and banana mixture to prepare a batter (the batter should be in semi thick consistency like dosa batter).

    Add water if necessary. Heat the kuzhipaniyaram pan; add 1 to 2 tsp oil or ghee into each hole.
  • Pour the batter in each hole and allow to cook in the medium flame. Turn on the otherside using a tooth pick or a stick. Allow to cook till both sides turn golden brown colour. Serve hot.


    If you don’t have kuzhipaniyaram pan just deep fry.

    Heat oil in a pan, drop spoonfuls of batter in the oil and fry till it gets golden brown and crisp (cook this in medium flame).

    Remove from oil and place on a tissue to drain out the excess oil. Serve hot.
