Neyyappam is a tasty traditional snack of Kerala. As its name implies neyyappam is made with rice flour and jaggery in ghee. We can store neyyappam in an airtight container for up to one week (if we didn’t use banana). My grandmother used to make this snack for Bakrid. Golden childhood memories :). Neyyappam is very easy to make and requires very few ingredients. We are adding baking soda for the fluffiness of the neyyappam. Nowadays people are more health-conscious; so you can use oil instead of ghee.
