Kerala Style Kumbil Appam Recipe (Banana and Wheat Flour Dumpling) is a favorite Kerala snack during tea time. Wheat flour is crumbled with mashed & ripened banana. Grated coconut also adds in an extra flavor to the dish. Usually the mixture is stuffed inside a cone shaped bay leaf and then steamed. The bay leaf will give a wonderful aroma and taste as when it is steamed. But we have used banana leaves which also gives a great flavor. The snack is a very healthy option to eat during tea time. You are also free to use other ripened fruits like jackfruit and Nendra Vazhaipazham.

Serve the Kerala Style Kumbil Appam Recipe along with Masala Chai Recipe to make your evening snack healthy and wholesome.
