When served fresh, this Pulse Appe will remind you of scrumptious dal vadas – but the advantage is that this is easier to prepare!


A wholesome batter of four dals and rice is fermented for 12 hours. The next day it is reinforced with flavourful ingredients like spinach, onions, and so on, and cooked in an appe mould to make a tasty snack that goes wonderfully well with sambhar and chutney.


You can have this as a satiating evening snack with coffee or tea, or serve it as a starter at parties, but ensure that you serve it immediately on preparation as it becomes rubbery and loses its flavour after some time.

Pulse appe, a nutrious appe with goodness of pulse, made it in healthy way to have a south indian appe. The tempering added to the appe makes it so flavorful and tasty. I love the taste of this, its too good, but have it immediately when it is hot.
