Bored of trying out the same old curries with Brinjal/ Aubergine. Why not have a go at making this spicy tangy Brinjal Pickle?? more

In a hurry, why not cook up this simple and tasty Tomato Rice. Goes well with any yoghurt raita. more

A nutritious dal, especially with its combination of different lentils. A perfect accompaniment with plain rice. more

Another unusual dessert. This time with bread!. Never thought bread would taste so good, in a sweet dish other than bread and butter pudding! more

A typical Maharashtrian snack, Misal Pav. Both filling and tasty too! more



I have made Bread Dosas before, but found an interesting recipe with bread for appos and had not decided what to make for breakfast today. This seemed perfect. Thanks to the recipe I found on, with slight modifications. Another way to use up slightly old bread. 🙂

This is what you’ll need

Bread slices: 5 (I used brown bread)

Rava (semolina): 1 cup

Rice flour: 2tbsp

Yoghurt: 4tbsp

Onion: 1 (finely chopped)

Green chillies: 3 (chopped)

Mustard seeds: 1tsp

Cumin seeds: 1tsp

Udad dal: 1/2tsp

Curry leaves: Few

Hing (asafoetida): 1/2tsp

Coriander leaves: Few (chopped)

Salt to taste

Oil/ Ghee for making appos

Let’s get cooking

1. Soak the bread slices in water. Squeeze dry and mash.

2. Add the rava, rice flour and yoghurt to the bread and mix well. Keep aside.

3. Heat 2 tsp of oil in a pan and season with the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, udad dal, hing and curry leaves.

4. Add the onions and the green chillies. Fry for 2 -3 minutes.

5. Add this to the previously prepared rava mixture.

6. Add water and make a paste of pouring consistency.

7. Add the coriander leaves and salt. Rest the batter for 10 to 15 minutes.

8. Make the appos pouring a ladle full of the mixture into the appo kaili. Nicely brown on both sides. This has to be done on a medium to low flame and covered, so that the appo cooks properly.

9. Serve hot with chutney.

Approximate preparation and cooking time: 35 minutes

Serves: 4
