Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

Appa is also called Pathiri in Malabar cooking. These are essentially thin rice rotis served hot. Brown rice is high in fiber, acts as an anti-oxidant and has a low glycemic index. It helps in preventing diabetes, weight loss, heart disease and lowers cholesterol due to its high fiber content. Flaxseed helps slow down glucose metabolism and lower cholesterol levels. The omega-3 fatty acids in this superfood also reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure. It is a good option for adults as well as children.

  • Brown Rice flour - 20 g
  • Flaxseeds (roasted and coarsely grounded) - 10g
  • Salt to taste
Step 1 Boil 1 cup of water with salt in a deep pan Step 2 Add the brown rice flour while stirring continuously till the flour has absorbed all the water. Remove from the flame and knead into a soft dough, using warm water if required. Add roasted flaxseeds in the dough. Step 3 Divide the dough into equal portions. Step 4 On a wooden board, sprinkle a little water. Place each ball on the wooden board and with wet hands; press it evenly to make a round circle. Keep aside. Step 5 Heat an earthen tava (khapri)/tava and cook the appas on one side on a low flame. When it leaves the sides, turn it on the other side. As it rises, press it along the sides till it puffs like a ball. Step 6 Repeat with the remaining balls to make 5 more appas. Serve hot.
