  • 1 small gajar (carrot), chopped small
  • 1 finely chopped green chilli
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped hara dhania (cilantro)
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped

  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder

For the appe:

  • Vegetable oil, as needed


  1. In a bowl, add all of the batter ingredients and mix well. Add the water and make a thick batter. Let the batter rest for 20 minutes; then check to see if more water is needed to thin it to the desired consistency.
  2. Keep the appe pan on medium heat and pour a few drops of oil in each cavity.
  3. Reduce the heat to low-medium, pour the batter in each cavity, and cover with a lid. Cook for 2-3 minutes, remove the lid, add a few drops of oil on each appe, and then turn them over. Cook for about 2 minutes and remove.
  4. Serve the appe with green chutney/mint chutney and tomato sauce.
