I would always recommend using ripe banana for this recipe. Raw or just ripe bananas do not infuse the same amount of flavour to this appa recipe.  I personally like the recipe with less sweet so have added just quarter cup of Sugar. However, if you consider your bananas less sweet you are more than welcome to add extra jiggery or sugar to it.  Lastly, the typical recipe involves deep-frying these small dumpling in a hot oil, but as an alternative, you can use Paniyaram Pan or appe pan too.
