Appe/Paniyaram is a popular south Indian snack or a breakfast. Just like idli or dosa, appe/paniyaram is yet another popular breakfast recipes.

Traditionally appe is made by soaking rice and lentils and then making a batter and fermenting it just like dosa or uttapam batter. These appe are instant appe and are made using oats. Because of oats they are a low calorie and healthy breakfast.

They are super simple and comes together in very less time. I soaked the oats for 5-6 hours in yogurt but they can be made by using instantly too. 1 teaspoon baking soda can be used to make instant appe.

They tasted delicious and served with mint coriander chutney they were a healthy and a refreshing summer breakfast.

Let’s check the recipe in detail.
