Kaniyappam is small fried pancake usually given to kids who visit neighbor’s house asking for kaineetam. Taste wise kaniyappam is a similar to neyyappam and athirasam. I made it twice, and got very tasty kaniyappam , 


  Freshly ground rice flour                                   - 3 cups                       
  Jaggery                                                                - 1 ½  cup
  Sugarcane juice                                                    - ½ cup
 chopped coconut fried in ghee / grated coconut – 2 tbsps
 Sesame seeds                                                        – 1 tsp
 cardamom powder                                                 - ½ tsp
  oil                                                                          - for frying
 Water                                                                     - ¾ cup to 1 cup
 Ghee                                                                      - 1 tbsp


Melt jaggery in ½ cup cane juice and strain for impurities 
Fry coconut pieces in ghee until it becomes golden brown and keep aside.
In a bowl add rice flour,strained  jaggery water and sesame seeds,  ghee fried coconut along with that ghee and rest of water to form smooth  batter without any lumps  and set aside for 1 hour.
After an hour heat oil in a thick bottom pan and add 1/4cup batter it will spread.
Once the side turns to crisp flip on to other side and cooks the other side too.
 Remove from oil and keep it in colander to remove the excess oil.
Prepare kaniyappam with remaining batter.
Enjoy this vishu with this traditional Kaniyappam.
