To make this instant rava appe, I used the pre-seasoned cast iron appe pan from Macclite. You can explore a wide variety of cast iron collections for your kitchen needs at:

For Serving

  • 2 cups thick yogurt
  • Tamarind chutney
  • Mint-coriander chutney
  • Chaat masala
  • Roasted cumin powder
  • Red chili powder
  • Chopped coriander leaves
  • Sev (crispy chickpea noodles)
  • Pomegranate seeds (optional)


  1. Prepare the Batter

    • In a mixing bowl, combine rava (semolina) and curd (yogurt). Mix well and allow it to rest for 10 minutes. This helps the rava absorb the moisture.
  2. Prepare the Vegetables

    • Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and let them crackle. Add curry leaves and sauté for a few seconds.
    • Add chopped onions, green chilies, capsicum, and carrots. Sauté until the vegetables turn tender and the raw smell dissipates. Allow them to cool slightly.
  3. Combine Batter and Vegetables

    • Add the sautéed vegetables to the rava-curd mixture. Mix thoroughly.
    • Add salt and mix well. Adjust the batter consistency by adding a little water if it's too thick. It should be of dropping consistency.
  4. Prepare the Appe

    • Heat the appe pan and add a drop of oil into each mold.
    • Sprinkle a pinch of baking soda into the batter and mix gently.
    • Pour spoonfuls of the batter into each mold, filling them about 3/4th full.
  5. Cook the Appe

    • Cover the pan and cook the appe on low-medium heat for about 2-3 minutes.
    • Once the bottom side turns golden brown, flip them using a skewer or spoon. Cook the other side until it achieves a similar golden hue.
  6. Serve Hot

    • Remove the appe from the pan and serve them hot with a side of coconut chutney or any dip of your choice.

These Instant Rava Appe are a delightful addition to your culinary repertoire. They are not just quick and easy to make but also incredibly versatile. Whether it’s a morning rush or a sudden craving, these savory delights will always come to your rescue! Enjoy this simple and delicious dish for any meal of the day.
