Jackfruit Sweet Paniyaram Recipe / Jackfruit Unniappam Recipe

jackfruit sweet paniyaram

Last time I posted the recipe of kuzhi paniyaram. This time i tried the sweet version of paniyaram. It is also known as unniappam in malayalam. It is very easy to prepare. You no need to use idli/dosa batter for preparing this paniyaram. I used rice flour, jackfruit and jaggery syrup for preparing this paniyaram. Normally we will add mashed bananas in the unniappam batter, but for a variety I added jackfruit in this unniappam/ sweet paniyaram batter. It came out well. It was very tasty than the normal unniappam / sweet paniyaram, that we prepare with mashed bananas. Don’t forget to try this recipe,if you have ripe jackfruit in your home.You can watch my video, that I included at the end of this post for step by step instructions. Try this recipe and let me know how it turned out for you.
