Very Easy


- 1 cup Urad dal paste
- 1/4 cup Rava/Cream of wheat
- 1/4 cup sour yogurt
- 1 teaspoon lemoin juice
- 2 tablespoons spring onions chopped
- 1/4 cup onion finely chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger paste
- 1/2 teaspoon green chilies finely chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- salt
- oil

For Coconut Chutney:
- 1/2 cup fresh / frozen ground coconut
- 2 teaspoons roasted chana dalia
- 1/4 cup cilantro
- 1-2 green chilies
- 1 clove garlic
- 1/4 teaspoon ginger
- salt
- sugar
- water
- oil, mustard,cumin,curry leaves for tempering.


Step 1

Grind together coconut,chana dalia, garlic, ginger, cilantro, salt, sugar. Heat 1 teaspoon oil, add mustard, cumin, curry leaves, let it splutter.Add to the ground chutney.

Step 2

For "Appe': Mix together Urad dal paste, rava, onions, chilies, cumin, yogurt. Blend well. Keep aside for 10 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 °F.

Step 3

Oil muffin pans liberally.The 'Appe' tend to stick as Urad dal is pretty sticky.So either use oil liberally or use non stick muffin pans. Oil also helps to give 'crisp' texture and 'fried' golden brown color.

Step 4

Add lemon juice, baking powder, baking soda to the urad-rava batter.Mix only till well blended.

Step 5

Immediately pour 2 tbsp batter into oiled muffin pans.Drizzle few drops of oil on the sides of the batter as well. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.

Step 6

Turn up the heat to 425F. Bake for another 5-10 minutes until the 'muffins/appe' look golden brown and cooked from within. Take out from the oven, let them sit for 10 minutes.

Step 7

Remove from the muffin pan. Serve warm with Coconut chutney/Ketchup.
