Appe is an evergreen South Indian snack made with a batter of rice and urad. The ball-shaped appe tempt the diner with a crispy, golden-coloured surface that gives way to a soft and fluffy centre.

The Oats and Spring Onion Appe is a smart diabetic-friendly variant made with fibre-rich oats instead of high glycemic index rice.

A small tweak is all it takes to keep your blood sugar levels in check. A good amount of spring onions and a dash of pepper give these delicious appe a fabulous flavour and nice mouth-feel. Serve it hot with Sambhar .
