Appe With Boiled Rice (Ukdo Tandul)

appe with boiled rice

Few months ago, I bought a bag of boiled rice (ukdo tandul/Kerala matta rice) – the brownish colored boiled rice. V and I both enjoy the congee (pej) made of this rice. The problem is, we only get 10-20lb bags of this rice here. We don’t eat congee very frequently these days, so I needed another way of using this. So I have been making few different dishes with it. Since Ishaan loves the appe, I have been making these very frequently. I like this slight variation of regular appes.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup urad dal
1/2 cup idli/dosa rice (or use an white rice)
1/2 cup boiled rice (ukdo tandul/Kerala matta rice)
1/2 tea spn methi seeds
1/2 cup poha (thin or thick)
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
Salt

Method:
Soak urad dal, both kinds of rice, methi seeds in water for about 2hrs.
Grind them to a smooth batter. Soak poha in water and squeeze out water (I forgot to take a picture of this). Add this to batter and grind again. Add sait.
Leave it overnight for fermentation.
Just before making appe, add onion to the batter.
Make appes. I served it with onion-coconut chutney.

Serves : 4-5
Preparation time : 40mins
