Appe or paddu is another traditional element of south indian cooking – to be specific, it is a popular breakfast dish from the konkan regions in the west coast. Here is the recipe to make authentic appes, which are sure to bring back memories of grandma’s culinary skills!
- Clean, wash and soak the rice and urad dal separately in lukewarm water for at least 2 hours.
- Drain, add ½ cup of water and blend in a mixer to a smooth paste. Cover and keep aside to ferment overnight.
- Next day, heat the oil in a small kadhai, add the peanuts and onions and sauté on a medium flame for 3 to 5 minutes.
- Add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, green chillies, curry leaves and asafoetida and mix well.
- When the seeds crackle, pour the tempering over the fermented batter and mix well.
- Add the salt and a little water if required and mix well to a thick batter.
- Heat the appe mould on a medium flame and grease it lightly with oil.
- Pour a spoonful of the batter into each mould and cook it in a idli steamer till the outer surface becomes golden brown.
- Turn each appe upside down using a fork so as to cook on the other side.
- Repeat with the remaining batter to make more appes. Serve hot with tomato chutney
