Semolina And Flatten Rice 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.

I have shared sprouts appe earlier.
Today sharing one more appe recipe with semolina, flatten rice/chivra/poha, oats and flax seed.

Its super soft and delicious.  I didn’t tempered it. But you can temper it if you like. For tempering heat oil in a small pan add mustard seeds and let it splutter, add few curry and a pinch of asafetida. Saute and add in the batter.
You can make it without tempering too.

A healthy and tasty breakfast. Very easy and quick to make. You don’t have to grind any ingredient.
