  1. Wash and soak rice and urad dal in fresh water and leave over night or minimum 4 hours.
  2. Drain water and grind to make a fine batter. Do not add much water as the batter should be thick enough like we make for Dosa.
  3. Collect the batter in a large container and leave it for 5-6 hours to ferment. Make sure you use a large vessel because the batter will rise while fermentation.
  4. Mix the fermented batter with a ladle and add salt as needed.
  5. Heat an Appe pan and add add 1-2 drops of oil in each socket.
  6. Once the oil is piping hot, add 1tbsp of batter in each socket. Simmer the gas and close lid.
  7. After a couple of minutes, flip the Appe balls and again add 1-2 drops of oil in each socket so that the appes are nicely fried from the other side as well.
  8. Once the appe are nicely crisp from outside, collect them in a plate and prepare the next batch.
  9. Serve them hot with your favorite chutney.
