Jackfruit Unniyappam

I have not made the traditional unniyappams yet, using banana..my unniyappams are quick fix ones using the jackfruit halwa (chakka varatti) thats always there in my freezer.


Jackfruit halwa / chakka varatti - 1 cup
Rice flour - 2 cups
Jaggery syrup - 1 cup (if you need it to be more sweet, add either more jaggery or brown sugar)
Black sesame seeds - 3 tbsp
Salt - a pinch
Sliced coconut - 1/4  cup (roasted)


Mix chakka varati, rice flour and jaggery syrup well, either with your hands or using a ladle. Add more water as needed, the mixture should have a thick flowy consistency. Add the roasted coconut pieces, salt and sesame seeds, mix well. Set the mixture aside for atleast 1 hr.

Heat the unniyappa chatti, and fill 1/4th each impression with oil. When the oil is hot, pour the jackfruit mixture using a ladle or spoon into each impression. Once the bottom side is cooked (which takes about 5min), using a spoon, turn the unniyappams upside down and cook for another 5 min. After that remove the unniyappams and drain oil. Repeat the process till the whole batter is used.
