How to Make Jackfruit Unniyappam - Godu Appo

  • Wash and clean raw rice and soak in 3 cups water for 5 hours.
  • Drain out water thoroughly and make a smooth paste in mixer (in batches) with grated coconut and chopped jackfruit bulbs. Use only very little water (1-2 tbsp) during grinding.
  • Finally add melted and sieved jaggery, cardamom powder and dried ginger powder. Batter should not be very thick. It should be of pouring consistency. Keep aside the batter for 2-3 hours to allow it to ferment.
  • Heat unniyappam kadai on a medium heat. Sprinkle each mould with 1/2 tsp ghee.
  • Pour batter in each mould. Sprinkle a little ghee again over batter. Cover with a lid and cook on low-medium heat for 8-10 minutes until the edges separate from the kadai moulds and you start getting a nice aroma.
  • Flip them over and cook again for 8-10 minutes.
