Rice flour Æbleskiver sweet (also known as nei paniyaram)
1 cup rice flour *
3/4 cup jaggery
3/4 cup water *
1/4 tsp cardamom ground
1/8 tsp salt optional
1 ripe banana mashed
1 to 2 tbsp ghee to grease the pan *
Melt the jaggery in the water and mix the rice flour or ground rice and banana. Make a smooth thick paste. Heat up an abelskiver pan in medium heat, put about 1/4 tsp of ghee to each hole and put about 1/2 to 3/4 full batter. Flip the snack with a skewer once it is easy to turn it and cook the other side. Enjoy warm.
* For this nei paniyaram (ghee fried snack) I used store bought roasted rice flour, can also used unroasted rice flour or soak the raw rice for about 3 hours then grind it.
* May need to add more or less water depends on if you are using the flour or grinding the rice.
* Can also grease the pan with oil or butter as well.
While enjoying these snacks we played with Mancala.
I bought this Mancala game by Schylling from Amazon. A very ancient game that is addictive and lots of fun. I played this with my grandma and aunts as a child, and buying one brought back lots of wonderful memories of late afternoon fun. This is a solid wooden board with glass beads. The glass beads can be replaced (from any craft or dollar store) if you misplace.
