Sweet Rice (Inippu Arisi) Appam / Paniyaram

My In laws were in town. So taking excuses to do snack as my FIL likes snacks during tea time. Even though I like Banana as a fruit I don't like it in dishes or snacks like Appam, Chapathi etc.. As we were chatting my Mother in law was talking about appam and said we can do without banana. I was so excited about it and wanted to do it immediately. It came out well and everyone at home liked it too.
