Rice appe

Rice appe easy snack recipe made with raw rice, poha, and common spices.  These round-shaped dumplings are generally served as a snack but can also be served as a morning breakfast recipe or kids’ lunch box. I also share slightly spicy coconut-coriander chutney which tastes great with it. It is an easy and foolproof recipe for soft and spongy appe for the first time. Do try this!

The key to making tasty rice appe at home are

  • Firstly, I made appe with soaked raw rice and poha. Poha gives extra fluffiness to appe. Also soaked rice-poha mixture into buttermilk to fasten fermentation process.
  • Rice appe batter should be medium thick and pouring consistency. If your batter is slightly thin, add some rava to adjust its consistency.
  • I have cooked appe in tadka pan which is easily available in every kitchen. you can also make it in appe pan or you can make chilla or dosa with this batter.
  • I have shared a spicy green coriander chutney which makes it an ideal combination for rice appe. but you may also try this with other types of chutney including different types of sambar to go with it.
  • Lastly, dhokla tastes great when it is slightly hot appe and tastes great when served with spicy chutney.
