Malabar Special Ramzaan Sweet Treat

Malabar Special Ramzaan Sweet Treat

Unnakayi. Unnakaye. Unnakaya. Pazham Nirachadhu. Stuffed Plantains. Vazhai Kai Appam?Vayaka Adda. Vayyakada. Kai ada. Kayeada.

Generally I do cook several dishes from my blogger friends, but I don’t picture or post them. This is the first time, I am so impressed with my fellow blogger’s work and tried her recipe the very same day. When she posted this recipe’ under Ramadhaan special, I was so curious to try it immediately. That was quite exciting and totally a new dish for me:) But I was so skeptical to post the same because’ mine didnt turn out very well…hmmm but its okay for the first time, right! Anyhow, comeon please take a look, at the original version, here.


Semi ripe plantains (not raw, not ripe…you got it?)
Egg with Sugar – scrambled
Cashewnuts and raisins – ghee fried.
Ghee for deep frying.


Steam the palntains, peel and core them. Now mash them coarsely.

Divide into equal parts, and flatten them…fill-in scrambled eggs plus nuts and raisins. Cover and bring them to elongated ball shapes. Repeat the same for allt he remaining stuff too.

Shallow or deep fry these in hot ghee. Yep, ready…so yummm:)
