Kara Appam

Hi all,

This is a quick snack which you can make if your craving for a crispy and spicy snack.. A little planning and you can make this different snack if guests are coming home or if you just want to snack something with your evening chai.

This recipe is my MIL’S. When she made this, I was in love with this snack. So here you go..

Ingredients for soaking:

Raw rice – 1/2 Cup
Urad dal – 1/2 Cup
Toor dal – 1/2 Cup

Other Ingredients:

Salt as per taste
Asafoetida powder – 1/2 tsp
Red chilli – 5
Curry Leaves a few
Oil for frying


Rinse and Soak all the ingredients under soaking for at least 3 hours.

Then add salt, asafoetida powder, curry leaves and grind them coarsely. The batter should be thick..

Now heat oil in a kadai. Keep the flame medium-low. Take a kuzhi karandi or a small laddle and once oil is hot pour small quantity of the mixture into the oil and fry them in batches.. Fry them in low flame for them to turn crispy and golden brown.

Enjoy it hot with Chutney of your choice. πŸ˜‹πŸ‘
