Sprouts And Oats Appe



Appe or kuzhi paniyaram is a south Indian dish made of steaming batter.

Traditionally made from pulses and 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.

Today I made it with sprouts, flax seed powder and oats to make it more healthy.

Its an easy way to make kids enjoy healthy stuff. Can’t express the happiness in words when they demand again and again
A very healthy, tasty and easy recipe.

I tempered it with mustard seeds and curry leaves. You can make it without tempering too. But tempering will make it more yummy.




Green whole gram/moong sprouts – 1 cup

Oats – 1 cup ground

Semolina – 1/2 cup

Rice flour – 1/2 cup

Curd – 1 cup

Flax seed powder – 2 tablespoon

Ginger – 1 inch piece chopped

Green chilli – 2-3 chopped

Onion – 1 large chopped

Green coriander leaves – handful chopped

Cumin powder – 1 teaspoon

Garam masala powder – 1/2 teaspoon optional

Chaat masala powder – 1 teaspoon

Salt to taste

Oil  – little for frying the appe

Baking soda – 1/2 teaspoon

For seasoning/tempering

Mustard seeds  – 1 teaspoon

Curry leaves  – few chopped

Grind the sprouts with ginger and green chilli. In a bowl mix ground sprouts, oats, semolina, rice flour, flax seed powder, curd salt, spices and soda.

Make a thick batter with little water. Mix well. Keep aside for 1/2 an hour.

Heat the oil in a small pan, add mustard seeds, let it splutter. Add curry leaves saute for 1 minute. Add the tempering to the batter and mix well.

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.

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!
