Ashadi Ekadashi is considered to be the most austere & sacred of all 24 Ekadashis.If observed religiously,it is said to be most rewarding and granting the virtue gained by the observance of all 24 Ekadashis in the year.
Now I’m really not one of those who can fast…on the name of God,But was tempted to make a fasting dish looking at all the yummy pics posted on social media…
2 Cups Sabudana (Soaked in water for 4 hours)
1/4 cup shengadana kut(raw peanuts roasted and grounded to powder).
1 Big potato.(Cleaned,boiled,peeled and mashed)
1/2 cup Curd.
3 Green chillies.
1 tsp Jeera.
2 tbsp Ghee.
1 tsp Sugar.
Salt to taste.
1/4 Cup chopped corriander leaves.(optional)
Make coarse paste of jeera and green chillies.Keep aside.
Mix all the ingredients except ghee together,add jeera and green chilli paste,mix well.let it sit for 15 minutes.
Consistency of Batter should be like cake batter.
To make appe you will require a special griddle called appe patra,its a griddle with cavities in it.It is easily available in shops.
Heat appe patra,grease with little ghee.Drop batter in the cavities with a small spoon.
Let it cook from one side,then flip over with help of fork and cook till it turns light brown in colour.
