Urad Dal Paddu(Udida Appe)

Paddu(Kannada), appe(Konkani), ponganalu (Telugu), paniyaram(Tamil), unniyappam(Malayalam), is one very popular dish in South India. To make this we require a special paddu tava (Appe Kayli), which looks like following.

Usually we get two kinds of tavas, one of black colour(of cast iron) and other silver color(I guess it is aluminium). In silver one the batter does not stick to tava, so preferably use that. These days we get non stick paddu tava, which looks like following. If using cast iron tava, grease it with oil in the night and use it for making paddu next day. By doing this, paddu does not stick to tava.
