Rava Paniyaram | Rava Urad Dal Appe Recipe

Paniyaram is a Tamil Dish which is usually made from the normal Idli or Dosa batter. You need Appe or Paniyaram mould to make Paniyaram. However, you can make alterations in your batter and experiment with pulses to make it more healthy and give variations . Temper it with onions, curry leaves and mustard seeds . You can also little jaggery to it to give it a sweet flavour.

Today on Raksha Bandhan, I made this for breakfast and enjoyed a healthy and fulfilling breakfast and served with some coriander and coconut chutney. You can enjoy it with freshly brewed coffee or some masala chai.

What You Need:

Urad Dal – 1/2 cup
Rava - 1 cup
Chana Dal - 1/3rd cup
Oats -1/3 cup
Methi Dana – 1/2 tsp
Soak above for 4 hours and then grind to a smooth paste adding little water if needed. Let it ferment for 8 hours. Add salt as per taste and mix well. Our batter is ready to use.

For tempering :
1 tsp Oil 
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 green chili chopped
Onion finely chopped
Coriander leaves finely chopped
Grated coconut ½ cup

Heat oil in a pan . Add mustard seeds and let it cackle.
Add curry leaves and onion. Cook till onions turn light brown.
Add it to batter. Add coconut and coriander leaves. Mix well.
Now you will only need a appe maker. Add one drop of ghee or clarified butter in each mould.
Add 2 tsp of batter prepared above in each mould. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes for some time.
