Neyyappam or Unniappam

Neyyappam ( Ney meaning ghee and appam meaning pancakes) or Unniappam (Unni meaning small in Malayalam) is a Kerala specialty offered to Lord Ganesha. It’s a pancake made of rice flour, coconut and jaggery fried in ghee. The house would be filled with the aroma of jaggery and ghee when my Mother used to make it and we would wait restlessly to dig our teeth into the soft delicacies till ‘naivedyam’ (offering to God) was offered to God. You need a special vessel for making unniappams called ‘appakara’. I’ve taken an image from google for easy reference.
