BIG HAI WITH TASTY CUCUMBER UNNIAPPAMS

A big hai to all my dear friends. I am back after a loooooooong break. Hope everyone are doing great. I truly missed you all very very much along with your tasty recipe. Will try to cover up those when I visit ur blog. Really friends, I agree from my bottom of my heart, its very nice to land in India. For few weeks we visited all our relative's places in Kerala. We were able to make out how they were also happy seeing smera after long . So soon after a long hectic journey, now we are in Mangalore and finally everthing got settled. Hey let me share with you all one good news. My little one started going to school. Firstly she was not interested as it was entirly a different atmosphere, sudden change of school so an so. As of now by god's grace she enjoys going there.

Its a moment of my great pleasure to be with my parents and inlaws and sidly tasting their delicious goodies. I had the previlage to taste one of the interesting sweet healthy ''Cucumber Unniappams'' prepared by the mom. These cuties have become my all time favourites and i just loved its each and every bite of it.Its healthy and nutrients for kids too. It tastes even good the next day. I suggest everyone to try out this unique unniappams.


INGREDIENTS.

1 Big Grated Cucumber.

1 Cup Wheat flour.

1 Cup Grated Coconut.

3/4 Cup Jaggery.

1/2 Cup Rava.

Pinch of Elachi.

Ghee as per needed.

METHOD

Remove cucumber skin and grate. Keep it aside.

In a pan add jaggery along with coconut . Let the jaggery melt. Keep on stirring so that the mixture does not stick at the bottom of the pan. Remove from fire and let it cool down . Add rest of the ingredients one by one except ghee.
Add water if needed. The consistency should be thick enough.


Take the unniappam pan and grease each holes with 1/2 spoon of ghee. When it become hot, fill those holes with the batter. Cover with lid and sim the flame to the lowest.

When its half cooked, turn the unniappams so that it gets cooked on the other side.

Remove when they are done.

Tasty cucumber unniappams are ready to eat.


Enjoy!!
