Oats unniyappam – a twist to your favourite tea partner


Oatmeal, which is widely believed unavoidable in a healthy diet, has become very common in the Malayali meal plans. Here is a fusion recipe that incorporates oats in the Kerala kitchen.


1 cup oats

½ cup semolina

1 tbsp all purpose flour (maida)

½ coconut (grated)

¼ tbsp baking soda

1 banana

Jaggery syrup as required

Cardamom powder as required

Oil to fry


Mix the oats and semolina, and soak in warm water to soften it

Add the Mysore banana in the grated coconut

Mix well

Add the jaggery syrup, all purpose flour (maida), soaked oats and semolina and baking soda

Mix well and keep aside for at least an hour

Add the cardamom powder

In an unniyappam vessel, pour some oil

When the oil gets hot, pour a spoonful of batter

When the unniyappan begins to separate from the holes in the vessel, flip it

Fry until all the sides are crisp

Place on paper towels to remove extra oil
