Upwas APPE :

Yet another interesting & innovative maharashtrian  recipe especially for fasting  (upwas /vrat) day.I had seen this on one of the marathi tv channel & had tried last thursday .
Appe is also known as Paddu(Kannada), appe(Konkani/ marathi), ponganalu (Telugu), paniyaram(Tamil), unniyappam(Malayalam).

To make this we require a special tava (Appe Tava), Usually we get two kinds of tavas, one of black colour(of cast iron) and other  non stick  tava.

I have used non stick tava so that appe dont stick to the tava(GRIDDLE).

This is a miniature sabudana vada version or you can say sabudana wada with very less oil .The ingredients used for sabudana appe are similar to sabudana vada with addition of few ingredients.This is a good fasting option for calorie conscious people.

1 cup - sabudana (sago) soaked for minimum 4 hours in water
3/4 cup - boiled mashed potato
2 green chilies -  grind to coarse paste  in mixie
1/2 cup - peanut powder ( shengdana kut)
1 tsp - sugar
1 tsp cumin seeds crushed lightly
1 tsp cumin powder
3 tsp - dahi ( yoghurt)
Salt to taste
ghee /oil
Water as required

Method :
1. Mix  sabudana (sago)  with boiled potatoes add green chilies ,peanut powder ( shengdana kut),cumin seeds,sugar,dahi ,salt & sugar. Add litte water to make a paste of above mixture.

2. Take appe patra  as shown below.

3. Grease the holes of appe patra with ghee or oil. Pour the mixture prepared in step 1 in the individual holes of tava with help of spoon.

4. Place tava on gas & cover it with a lid. Cook for 2-3 minutes till it is cooked (turns brownish in colour) .next turn the appes with help of spoon so that cooked side is on top  till the other side gets cooked .Add ghee or oil if required.

5. Remove from tava & serve upwas appe with upwas groundnut coconut chutneyfasting dahi chutney / plain yoghurt.
