10 recipes made using an appe mould

sent on 28-Apr-2019

Appe is a popular South-Indian snack made from a batter of rice and pulses, semolina or may be any type of flour. They are cooked in Appe moulds (Appapatra/ Appam Patra). The appe mould is a shallow pan with round, cup-like holes to pour the batter into. While traditional appe moulds are made of iron, stoneware or bronze, we now find most households replacing these with non-stick appe moulds, which are readily available in stores. This utensil is used on the stove-top to cook appe. They are small, round and a perfect accompaniment to your cup of Masala Chai or South Indian Filter Coffee.

Appe is usually cooked in oil and are crispy on the outside and soft in the inside. Some batters require fermenting while others are quick. In fact, if you have leftover idli batter post last night’s dinner, you can use it to whip up delectable Quick Vegetable Appe. You can pack them in your kid’s tiffin box along with ketchup. While kids can enjoy these simple appe, adults can perk up the idli batter with spices to make Masala Appe. Serve these tasty snacks with accompaniments like sambhar and coconut chutney.

Since cooking the batter in appe moulds needs less oil, you can even use it to make healthy vadas like the Oats and Moong Dal Dahi Vada and Low-Calorie Medu Vada.

An addition of the traditional South-Indian tempering of mustard seeds, urad dal and curry leaves, enhances the batter and helps in making a variety of appe, such as the Instant RavaAppe and Rice Appe. Below are 10 amazing recipes that you can make in an appe mould.

Happy Cooking!
