Appe/Gunta Panganalu/Paniyaram with Hunasekai Thokku/chintakai Pachadi

Gunta Panganalu

“Appe” /”Gunta Panganalu”/ “Paniyaram is authentic to every region in India. Whether it is made as a dessert or a savoury breakfast, its absolutely delicious and extremely simple to make with the right tools on hand.
Udupi region boasts of differents kinds of Appe, uddina appe, Bella-Bale Appe are served in most udupi homes as a breakfast specialty.

Here is my favourite Uddina Appe also known as Gunta Panganalu in Andhra served with delicious Hunase Thokku/Chintakai Pachadi.

To make Appe you need
1 cup washed Urad dal
1.5 cups washed long grain rice
2 big onions finely chopped
5-6 green chillies finely diced
1tbsp jeera
1/2tsp hing
1cup chopped cilantro (preferably with stalks)
1tbsps fresh grated coconut/coconut pieces (optional)
Salt- 2tsps
Soak the dal and rice for 4hrs. Grind the mixture to a very fine paste with little water and add 2tsp salt. The consistency should be that of idli batter. Ferment it overnight or for atleast 6-8 hours in a warm place.
Once it is fermented, mix all the other ingredients. Now apply oil to the Appe pan/ableskewer pan, add a tbsp of batter and cook till it is crisp and golden brown on medium heat. Now flip and cook the other side uncovered till it is crisp.
Serve this hot with chutney of your choice..

Hunase Tokku/Chintakai Pachadi:
1cup raw tamarind pieces with skin
½ cup green chillies
1tsp fenugreek powder
1/2tsp turmeric
Grind everything together and season with hot oil and mustard seeds with hing…
