Yere Appa Recipe / Sweet rice dumpling

Posted by Veena Karanth at 09:23:00
Yere appa is a sweet dish prepared during the Diwali festivals in the region around Karnataka. As you all know that diwali, globally known as festival of lights is celebrated for 4 days. The first day is recognized as an auspicious day and to mark the occasion, they begin their day in the early hours of dawn with an oil bath. Some rituals are practiced during the previous day also and that day is widely recognized as Danateras in North India. In olden days people used the big copper vessels for filling the water and heating the same for bathing purpose. They used to fill the vessel with water by drawing it from the well and later on a puja is performed. It is during this time that this sweet is prepared. It is very yummy to taste and filled with calories as it tends to consume oil at an alarming rate. But then, as this festival is celebrated once in a year, you can comprise for a day.

Kitchen Masti Points.

  1. You can add cardamom while grinding the rice itself.
  2. Do not soak the rice for a long period of time, as it tends to consume more oil if you delay in grinding.
  3. Deep fry the appas in meduim heat. Increased heat may burn the exterior part of the sweet.
  4. The consistency of the batter should be that of the idli batter.
  5. In this recipe, I have used hard variety poha ( beaten rice ).
