Suji Appe | Instant Rava Appe Recipe | Quick Vegetable Paniyaram | Semolina Pancake Balls

Suji Appe is an instant south Indian breakfast recipe prepared with semolina, curd, veggies, and Spices. Traditionally it is made up of using leftover Dosa/Idli Batter, but this is the instant version made using Rava or Semolina, which takes little time to cook and tastes delicious.

Appe is also known as Paniyaram, Paddu, and Ponganalu. It is like a small round spongy ball just like fritter but with less oil. They are crispy outside and soft inside. 

Rava Appe recipe includes a batter of suji/semolina/Rava, yogurt, and water. Apart from soaking the batter, it does not require any fermentation, grinding, or milling. Into the batter, I add a few veggies and tempering of a few spices to enhance taste and nutritional value. The batter is poured in the Appe pan and cooked with little oil/ghee on both sides.

To make Appe, you will need a pan with Appe mold, which you can easily find in Indian Markets with 7, 9, or 12 shells.

Suji Appam and relatively easy to make. It is a healthy breakfast option. My Instant Rava Appe recipe is a variation to the traditional Appe recipe.
