Rice Appe is a simply awesome snack, which can be had as a tea-time treat or served along with idli, pongal, dosa or khichdi to add more josh to your breakfast.
Made by cooking a fermented batter of rice and urad dal in an appe mould, the appe are crisp outside but soft and spongy inside.
Preparing rice appe may need patience as the batter would need fermentation which takes atleast 8 hours but the wait and patience would be worth it as the outcome is amazing. We have prepared the batter by combining rice and urad dal. Further, soaked, ground and fermented it. Once the batter is fermented, made tempering which enhances the taste of rice appe once combined with the batter. Heat oil in a non-stick pan, add cumin seeds, mustard seeds, curry leaves, asafeotida, green chilies, onions and crushed peanuts and cook. Once cooked, we have combined the tempering to the batter. Further, greased a appe mould and cook the rice appe until they turn golden brown.
A tempering of mustard and cumin seeds together with onions and crushed peanuts give the Rice Appe an amazing taste and mouth-feel, which make it enticing to young and old alike.
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.
You can enjoy the rice appe just plain or with your choice of sambhar and chutney. Make sure you serve it immediately to enjoy the nice crispness. Once it cools, the crisp outer tends to harden and get a bit chewy.
