Appe or Paniyaram or Padu is an Indian dish which is made by steaming or frying the rice and lentils batter.Usually it is prepared from the batter of rice and black spilt lentils(urad dal) or from the dosa or idli batter.This are crispy from outside and soft from inside.It is one of the most healthiest form of breakfast or for tiffin.

But here I am making the mixed dal appe or mixed lentils appe.This is a healthy form as different type of lentils are mixed.Here I have used urad dal,chana dal and moong dal along with rice.The dals are washed and soaked together and the rice is also washed and soaked for 7-8 hours.These are then grinded to paste(not to fine paste) and then both the dals and rice are mixed together and kept for the process of fermentation.

Once nice fermented I have mixed the chopped onion,tomatoes chill-garlic paste to the batter.This makes the appe more healthy,nutritious and delicious.One can add different Vege’s of their choice.

These are prepared in special type of pan or mould which has several dents in it.This dents are brushed with some oil and then the appe batter is poured into this dents.Thesee then steamed by pouring some more oil over it.

Once prepared the Appe’s are served with Coconut Chutney.
