A well-proportioned batter of raw rice and urad dal is fermented, tempered and cooked in an appe mould, to get dainty, fluffy and flavour-packed Rice Appe.
Easy to make, but a bit more exotic than idlis and dosas, the Rice Appe is popular in South India as an evening snack, served with sambhar and a coconut chutney, and accompanied by a cup of hot coffee or tea.
It can also be served with other dishes to make a special Breakfast combo.
- Combine the raw rice and urad dal and enough lukewarm water in a deep bowl and keep aside to soak for 2 hours. Drain well and keep aside.
- Blend in a mixer using approx. ½ cup of water till smooth. Transfer the mixture into a deep bowl, add the salt and mix well.
- Cover with a lid and keep aside to ferment in a warm place for 10 to 12 hours.
- After fermention, heat the oil in a small non-stick pan, add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, onions, green chillies, curry leaves and asafoetida and sauté on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes.
- Add this tempering to the batter and mix well.
- Heat an appe mould on a medium flame and grease it using a little oil.
- Pour 1 tbsp of the batter into each mould.
- Cook, using a little oil, till the lower surface becomes golden brown and then turn each appe upside down using a fork so as to cook them from the other side using a little oil.
- Repeat with the remaining batter to make more appes.
- Serve immediately with sambhar and coconut chutney.
