Zatpat Rava Appe

The appe pan or aebleskiver pan is my favorite for quick snacks. And this recipe is great for an evening snack or appetizers for a party. This recipe results in spicy and sour appe that taste great with chutney or pickle. Use the spice/chili pepper liberally as the cream of wheat and yogurt is bland without it. This is one of my go to snacks.

You will need (14 appe)
1 cups Cream or wheat or rava
2 cups yogurt
a handful of cilantro
1/2 inch ginger
1 tsp. cumin seeds, crushed
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 green chili pepper, deseeded and minced
salt to taste
2 tbsp. olive oil

Combine the yogurt and rava in a mixing bowl and keep aside for an hour.

Mix in all the other ingredients except the oil.

Heat an aebleskiver or appe pan on medium/low heat. Add a few drops of oil in each of the wells. Add a tablespoon of batter to each well. Cover and cook on medium/low heat.

When the bottom is brown flip the appe over using a knitting needle or skewer. Allow the second side to brown. Take the cooked appe off the heat. Repeat with the remaining batter.

  1. This is such a delicious snack to munch during evenings with a cup of coffee.

  2. Every time I see these I decide on getting my new appe mould..but again forget!....the bite sized snack will surely pleas all, it is healthy and guilt free.

  3. Right, these appam do make a guilt free snack. I would have never thought that the rava ones would puff up so nicely if I haven't seen your version.

  4. With a spicy chutney am sure i can munch couple of this cute appes without any fuss. They came out simply prefect.

  5. I make uthappam with this mixture but making these guilt free appe is a great idea as well.

  6. Love these quick and easy to make appe. Using cream of wheat is a great idea.
