In a mixing bowl, combine the mashed bananas, rice flour, grated jaggery, grated coconut, cardamom powder, and a pinch of salt. Mix well to form a smooth batter.
Add water gradually to the batter, while stirring continuously, to achieve a slightly thick consistency.
Heat oil in a non-stick appam pan or a frying pan over medium heat.
Pour a spoonful of the batter into each of the appam molds, filling them about 3/4th full.
Fry the appams until the edges turn golden brown and crispy. Flip the appams and fry the other side until golden brown.
Remove the appams from the pan and place them on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
Repeat the process with the remaining batter.
