Appe is a Maharashtrian name for dumplings cooked with various recipes in an Appe pan. As the pan is non-stick, it requires very little oil and is a much, much healthier option to deep frying. I make sabudana vadas, medu vadas and mixed dal vadas too, in this pan. The recipe posted here for Mixed Pulses Appe comprises of five dals….Udad Dal, Masoor Dal, Chana Dal, Moong Dal and Tuvar Dal. So not only do you get your daily dose of protein, but you can also eat as many as you want as they are relatively oil-free! Pair them up with the dip/ sauce/ chutney of your choice and your stomach is happy and full till lunch-time comes by.

I believe that food should look as good as it tastes, and vice-versa. Maybe this is because I am an artist and an advertising professional too! But my first brush ...Read more about this chef..
