Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. It was a while we had been for any trips. So my hubby planned a 2 day trip to Branson in Missouri. It was a sudden plan, but I was all excited to go. This was our second trip to Missouri as we had visited St.Louis quite sometime back. Our trip was really great, a different experience and we had lots of fun. My son also enjoyed well and sure its so nice to travel with your family rt.
Today's recipe is a healthy appam. It has Oats as the main ingredient and I have added some spinach to make it more healthy and colourful. But the best part is that its made in paniyaram or appam pan with very less oil...that makes it real healthy rt !! Add carrots or any other veggie to make it colourful. The batter for these appams can be prepared so quick and appams will be ready soon. Hope this gives you a wonderful breakfast or a snack idea !!
What you need?
1 cup Oats ( I used Quaker oats, old fashioned)
1/2 cup Rice flour
1/4 cup chopped Onion
1/2 cup chopped Spinach
2-3 Green chillies chopped
1/2" pc Ginger chopped
3-4 Curry leaves chopped
How to prepare?
Powder the oats in a blender. Combine powdered oats and rice flour in a bowl. Add onion, spinach, green chillies, ginger, curry leaves and salt. Add water as required and mix well so as to get a dosa batter like consistency.
Heat the paniyaram or appam pan on a medium flame. Add 2-3 drops of oil in each hole. Pour a ladle of batter in each hole. Cover and cook until bottom part is cooked and crispy. With a spoon slowly flip it to other side. Let it cook for few minutes. Remove from the pan once both sides are done.
Serve the appams with chutney or sambhar or pickle.
Makes about 21 appams.
