New Post...another breakfast dish...Masala Appe / Paniyaram :)

I got this Appe pan / Ebleskiver Pan, long time back from my mom but didn't try at all. Finally thought of giving it a try. And it does wonders!! Tried almost 3-4 varieties of appe / paniyarams in it and they turned out super hit at my home.

Lovely bite sized beauties, goes well for breakfast and also as snack item/lunchbox dish.

This post is of Masala appe, will keep posting more varieties of it!
This dish wont consume much of your time as the batter used is already ready. All we need is add whichever vegetables we need and done!!

Try out and enjoy!!
