Suyyan | Suyyam | சுகியன் | சுய்ய‍ம் - Sweet & Savoury version


Suyyan / Suyyam / Susiyam / Sukhiyam / Suzhiyam is a traditional South-Indian sweet delicacy. There are different names and methods for preparing this. I have followed my mom's method which is my favorite and simple too. 
Sweet Suyyam 
--------------------
This is an excellent way to use the over-ripe banana. 

Ingredients :-
------------------
 Maida   100 grams 
 Rice flour   l tsp 
 Banana   1
 Jaggery    4 tbsp
 Cardamom powder      ¼ tsp
 Grated Coconut (optional)   l tbsp 
 Oil for deep frying  
 Salt  Pinch

Method :-
-------------        
1). Powder the jaggery without any lumps. Mix maida and rice flour with the jaggery. Then add banana, grated coconut and cardamom powder. Combine everything together by adding water little by little to bajji-batter* consistency without any lumps. (Neither thick nor thin). 
2). Heat Oil in a pan for deep frying. When the Oil is hot, take a gooseberry size of batter and gently slide it in the oil. Turn over and fry till brownish color. Make sure not to leave them for long, as they tend to turn black. Remove onto strainer to drain excess oil.      
Serve the delicious Sweet suyyam with Savory Suyyam.

Notes (Sweet & Savory):-  
-----------------------------------
# *The batter should not be too thick like a Chapathi dough. Rather, it should be like idli batter consistency - free flowing but not too thin. 
# Make sure you fry in medium heat throughout the process so that it cooks evenly. 
# For sweet suyyam, you can replace jaggery with white sugar. But Jaggery tastes better.
