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.

A welcome change to the usual idlis. Onions and peanuts with tempering of mustard seeds, cumin seeds and curry leaves blend well and boost the taste of Rice Appe.
