   This appos are similar to other paniyaram/appo recipe but I have given it a twist… presented this in a tri colour which represents our national flag…
  You get to see a saffron colour on top ,where I have used a red chutney in the batter to get saffron ,second layer I didn’t add anything left the batter plain for represting the white colour and the third layer I have added a green chutney to represent green colour… I named it TRI COLOUR APPO…
   I am happy to share this recipe on our 67th Republic Day…..
   Recipe is as follows…


•2 cups raw rice
•1/2 cup urddal
•1/2 tsp methi/fenugreek seeds

▪soak rice,methi,channadal and urd dal for 3 hrs,now grind this to fine batter along with washed pova ,ferment overnight or 7-8 hrs
