It was time for Sunday breakfast yesterday and I was craving something crispy and savoury. I am a member of a food group of Facebook and another member of the group had shared a recipe for Savoury pancakes (Uttapams) using Poha (beaten rice), oats and an Indian pickle masala. So, I decided to bring out my Appe pan and make Appe using the same basic ingredients to make Appe. They turned out to be soft and moist inside, but really crispy outside with a nice zing from the pickle masala. If you do not have this masala; mix a pinch of turmeric and asafoetida, red chilly powder and a teaspoon of roasted and crushed mustard seeds; and use this spice mix in the batter.

Ingredients:

½ cup Thick Poha (Beaten rice);

½ cup Rolled oats;

½ cup Semolina (Rawa);

1 red onion, finely chopped;

¼ tsp Carom seeds (ajwain);

1 tsp KePra mango pickle masala;

Buttermilk, enough to make a thick batter;

Fruit salt or baking soda, a small pinch;

Salt to taste;

Oil, to grease the pan.

Method:

  1. Add the poha, Semolina and Oats to a mixing bowl. Crush lightly with your fingertips.
  2. Add the Carom seeds, salt, Pickle masala and fruit salt to it and mix together.
  3. Pour buttermilk into the bowl and mix until you get a thick batter. Rest the batter for 30-45 minutes.
  4. Run a hand blender in the batter for just a minute. Then add in the finely chopped onion to it and mix well.
  5. Heat the Appe pan on medium heat. Add a drop of oil in each concavity of the pan and add a spoonful of batter in each concavity.
  6. Cook well on one side, then flip over and cook well on the other side too on medium heat.
  7. Serve with any chutney or tomato ketchup.
