Sarva pindi / ginnu appam - Telangana special

Today we are starting with the final week for BM # 48 and. And for this week my theme is  "Nasta Time". Anything which can be had during morning breakfast or evening snack.

For day 1,  am here with a Telangana famous snack or breakfast dish  called Sarva Pindi. Sarva Pindi is a spicy pancake , a stable breakfast made with rice flour, chana dal, sesame seeds, curry leaves, peanuts and green chilies. Never tried this earlier but this is one of the  simplest and delicious snack or breakfast I have made in recent times. My family loved it, hope you and your family likes it too. Here goes the recipe.......

We need:

Rice flour 2 cups
Chopped onion 1/2 cup
Chopped green chili 1 spoon
Chopped cilantro 1 cup
Chopped curry leaves 4 spoons
Sesame seeds 2 spoons
Roasted and crushed peanuts 3/4 cup
Soaked chana dal 1/4 cup
Haldi / turmeric powder 1/2 spoon
Chili powder 1 spoon
Salt to taste
Oil for shallow frying


Add all the ingredients in a large bowl  except oil and  mix well.
Now add water just enough to make a soft dough like chapati dough.
Heat a large skillet or tawa.
Add oil and let it heat on low flame.
Meanwhile apply little oil to  plastic sheet  and to your hands.
Now take a lemon sized mixed  dough  and place it on the greased plastic sheet.
Press gently with your hands to make a round shaped pancake.

Now take this pancake and slowly place it on the heated oil.
Cook on medium to low flame for 5 minutes on each side or until  the pancake turns brown and crisp.
Serve hot.

To look more colorful you can even add chopped green onion and grated carrots to the flour before mixing with water.
