1 cup semolina cream of wheat (rava)
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup flour
2 tbsp coconut fried in 1 tsp ghee
1 cup ripe banana mashed
1/4 tsp cardamom ground
1/2 cup jaggery syrup or treacle *
oil to coat the pan
* I used palm treacle, can substitute with brown sugar.
Soak the semolina in the water for 1/2 hour. Add all the ingredients to the soaked semolina and make a thick batter, the batter should not be pourable.
Heat the aebleskiver pan in medium high heat, when it is hot put 1/4 tsp oil and brush the sides. Then put batter to fill the holes and cook. When it is easy to turn, turn it with a wooden skewer and cook the other side. Serve it warm.

I bought this reasonably priced Lodge pro-logic aebleskiver from Amazon. It is made in the USA, cast iron is pre seasoned which makes it easy to use. As the pan and handle is made with cast iron, it is better to use a glove to hold the handle.
I washed it with hot water, as it says not to use soap or detergent. I also avoided using metal tools, instead turned the snacks with a wooden skewer. I coated the holes with oil, using a silicon pastry brush and didn't have to use too much oil to make these snacks.
