Rava paniyaram recipe

Rava sweet paniyaram or rava appam is a delicious snack prepared for festivals like Karthigai deepam.
Prep Time10 minutes
Cook Time20 minutes
Soaking time30 minutes
Course: Snack
Cuisine: Indian, South Indian
Servings: 15 Paniyarams



  • ½ cup Rava
  • ½ cup Grated coconut
  • ½ cup Jaggery powdered
  • 3 tablespoon Maida
  • 1 Cardamom powdered
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1 pinch Cooking soda
  • ½ Banana optional
  • Ghee/ oil - For frying


  • Soak rava minimum ½ an hour. I soaked longer.
  • Drain water, add all the other ingredients and mix well.
  • If you think your jaggery is having impurities, make syrup with very less water and filter to remove the impurities.
  • Then use the jaggery syrup. Careful with water quantity.
  • Heat paniyaram pan, fill each shallow with ½ teaspoon oil/ ghee and pour the batter to fill ¾th in each shallow.
  • Cook covered in low flame, flip and cook until golden in colour.


  • If using banana, mash it well and mix along with other ingredients in step 1. It gives softer results.
  • You can make the same with sugar too. But I love the jaggery flavor.
  • Tastes super delicious. This can be perfect as evening snack for kids when they are back from school.
