OATS APPOS


OATS APPOS


In the past, I have posted the recipe for Instant Rava Appos. Here is one more variation to the many different types of Appos we make. This one includes healthy oats.

I have adapted this recipe from the one shared by my friend, Suphala Shenoy.

As you would probably know, for making Appos of different kinds, we use a special kind of tava which has sockets, which we call "Appe Kayli" in Konkani and Paniyarakkal in Tamil.  I use this one from Prestige's Omega series which makes 11 Appos in one round.

I have used peas and carrots but you could use other veggies such as cooked beans or cauliflower by adding them to the batter.




Ingredients: 

  • Oats, 1 cup
  • Rice Flour, 1 tbsp
  • Besan, 1 tbsp
  • Rawa/Semolina, 1/4 cup
  • Onion, 1
  • Green Chillies, 2
  • Ginger, 1/2 " piece
  • Green Peas (Frozen), 1/4 cup
  • Carrot, 1
  • Coriander leaves, 2 tbsp
  • Curds, 1 cup
  • Soda Bicarbonate, 1/2 tsp
  • Salt, to taste
  • Oil, as required
Method:

Finely chop the onion, chop the coriander leaves and grate the carrot
Crush the green chillies and grate the ginger
In a bowl, mix together the oats, rice flour, besan, rawa and curds with the required amount of water to make a batter
Add the frozen peas, chopped onion, grated carrot, and chopped coriander leaves, 
Add the crushed green chillies and grated ginger
Add salt to taste 
Add the soda bicarbonate 
Mix well and keep aside for about 10 -15 minutes
Your batter for the oats appos is ready
Pour a little oil in the sockets and heat the "appe kayili"
Pour in the prepared batter into each of the sockets
Cook the appos covered over medium heat till they are done
Flip them and roast the other side
Serve hot with chutney of your choice.
