This adorable, delicious instant rava appam can be your breakfast on any day of the week. Because it is instant and you don’t have to spend your time around planning for a healthy breakfast. I loved it’s golden exterior and soft texture inside which fueled me in the morning with all necessary carbs. In addition to being instant, what fascinates me is I can toss in my favorite veggies in to it. Like, say grated carrot or very finely chopped capsicum or tomato. So carbs filled breakfast having lots of vegetables hiding within sounds cool isn’t it?
Instant rava appam can be a REAL kiddo’s breakfast. Because kids love some pretty looking stuff which they themselves can hold in their hands and eat in slow pace. And we as mothers always look for some easy tricks to feed our kids nutrients in the form of vegetables and fruits. So, rava appam makes it easy by letting us hide the chopped veggies inside which is pretty good idea. What say?
Rava appam can be real quick if you have a cup of sour buttermilk that needs to be cleared off. Soak the semolina(rava) in buttermilk for few minutes to get it right for the batter. Semolina absorbs all the buttermilk just in 10 minutes, then additionally use some water to make the batter thin, of pouring consistency. There is no hard and fast rules on toppings. I have kept it simple with only onions and some greens like coriander leaves. When cooked in appam pan to the perfection, it gets nice golden exterior but remains soft inside. I love to eat this breakfast hot from the pan along with spicy coconut chutney.
