Bajra appe are steamed pancakes made with bajra (pearl millet) flour & fresh fenugreek greens. Vegan & gluten free, this methi bajra appe is a healthy and delicious millet recipe for breakfast and tiffin snacks.
In a bowl, mix together bajra flour, yogurt, salt, and water to make a thick and smooth batter. Cover and keep it aside for at least an hour, preferably in a warm place.
After an hour, add fenugreek leaves, coriander leaves, ginger, green chili and all the spices to the batter. Mix well.
Put the appe pan on medium heat and add a drop of oil in each of the cavity.
Add eno to the bajra methi batter, mix once and drop spoonfuls of the batter into the prepared appe pan.
Cover and cook for 3-4 minutes on one side. Open and add a drop of oil on the top of each of the appe and flip to cook the other side. *
Cover and cook the other side also for another 3-4 mins.
Cook till both sides are golden brown. Serve hot with ketchup and/or chutney.
*A good way to know if the bottom side is cooked is that the batter would have left the sides and can easily be flipped with a spoon.
Spices: I used all the spices listed in the ingredients but feel free to add or omit spices. Just salt is also enough as the fresh greens, chilies, and ginger add in lot of flavor too.
For more flavor and nutrition, add grated carrots, chopped spring onion greens or any other seasonal vegetable to the batter.
Nutritional Information is an approximate value for 1 of 4 servings (~5 appe). The tool I use didn't have Bajra flour for input so I have used a generic millet flour to calculate nutritional information.
