Instant Rava Appe

Rava appe is quick and best for those morning struggles when everything has to be in fractions,a best snack for any occasion.

Appe is basically south Indian dish which is made with idli batter,but if you are in hurry and want a quick appe then making rava appe is best.Here we use semolina/rava and curd with little water to make the batter,if you wish you can add vegetable of your like,i have made a simple version of appe here.

Before making these appes we have to rest this batter for 15 minutes so that semolina soaks all the curd along with water and is of perfect consistency,if you notice the batter to be quite thick after 15 minutes you can add more water to it.

Many people use fruit salt or soda while making appe to make it fluffy,but if you want you can skip this,i have not used any soda here,still my appe were fluffy and soft.

So,let’s get started
