Semolina and lentil appe.

Appe or kuzhi paniyaram is a popular breakfast dish from South India, made of steaming batter.

Traditionally made from pulses ando rice using a mould. It can be made sweet and spicy both.

You can make it with very few ingredients and enjoy as a healthy snack.

I have already posted some appe recipe. And I love these cuties. One more instant appe recipe with lentil, a powerhouse of nutrition.

Our this week’s #Foodiemonday #bloghop theme is South Indian breakfast.  My contribution is this healthy, yummy and easy south Indian breakfast appe.

You don’t need to ferment the batter overnight. A very quick and easy way to make a healthy and delicious breakfast.

I have made it without onion garlic but you can use onion garlic too if you like.

Recipe 


Semolina/suji – 1 cup

Curd – 1 cup

Moong dal or split green gram – 1/4 cup

Masoor dal or split red lentil – 1/4 cup

Rice flour – 1/2 cup

Cilantro – handful chopped

Green chilli – 1 – 2 or as per your spice tolerance, finely chopped

Ginger – 1 inch piece grated

salt to taste

Lemon juice – 2 teaspoons

Cumin powder – 1 teaspoon

Chat masala powder – 1 teaspoon

Baking soda – 1/2 teaspoon

oil – little for frying the appe + 2 teaspoons

Rai or mustard seed – 1/2 teaspoons

Curry leaves – few chopped

Method 
Soak the lentils for 2 hours or overnight and grind into a smooth paste.

Mix semolina and curd in a large bowl.

Add ground lentils with semolina/suji batter. Add rice flour,  salt, cumin powder, chopped cilantro, green chilli, grated ginger, chat masala and lemon juice. Mix well.

Make a semi thick batter. Add little water if require. Mix well. Keep aside for 1/2 an hour.

Heat the oil in a small pan, add mustard seeds, let it splutter. Add chopped curry leaves saute for 1 minute. I have dried curry leaves so I have crushed them with hand. Add the tempering to the batter and mix well. If you want to use onion garlic add 1 finely chopped onion and 1 teaspoon garlic paste in the batter.

Add soda and give a good stir.

Heat the appe pan and  grease it with little oil. Pour a spoonful of batter into each mould. Cover the pan with lid and cook on low flame till it becomes golden brown.

Now turn the appe upside down. Cook uncovered till becomes light brown.

Its ready. Serve hot with any sauce, coconut or peanut chutney. For peanut chutney recipe click the link below.

Batter Up With Sujata

I am Sujata Roy. A homemaker, a doting mother to two beautiful grown up children, a blogger, a passionate cook and lastly a foodie. Experimenting in the kitchen is what I love and enjoy doing the most. Specially experimenting with vegetarian dishes and egg-less cakes and cookies is what interests me more. My loved ones are fond of vegetarian cuisines, so I have them in my mind whenever I dish out a new recipe. However, I do not limit my experimental cooking to vegetarian recipes only, non-vegetarian recipe ideas are also dished out. Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Cooking!
