Description –



Appe/Paniyaram/Paddu is a South Indian delicacy that can be prepared in different ways. Whenever I want to make quick breakfast this becomes my goto recipe. It is very easy and quick to prepare and taste delicious. On the top of it its healthy too.

Aunthentic recipe of Appe/Paddu/Paniyaram uses idli/dosa batter. You can use anything for a batter like rawa, oats, whole wheat, besan or any other multigrain flour. This time I am sharing the recipe with idli/dosa batter.

The best part of this dish is that you can add any vegetable you like or don’t like it will turn up tasty. So, its best to add healthy vegetables like lauki/bottle gourd/dudhi which kids usually don’t like but is very healthy. This time I have added onion, carrots and capsicum.

I love South Indian dishes a lot that I can have them daily. So, I usually prepare South Indian breaksfast like idli/dosa/upma/appe atleast once in a week. If you and your family too like South Indian you must try this recipe.
