Cheese & Oats Paniyaram

DSC_1136

So I am back after a month though it seems like ages. In March, I had a very different perception of how April and May would turn out considering it is the daughter’s vacation time, but it wS hectic and chaotic in wholly different ways. Right from having a oil splash accident to help organise the brother & sis-in-law’s baby shower to help playing nurse to the father-in-law, this summer has me running in circles. Now it’s hardly any time left for school time and to begin the routine again.

In between all this activity the husband managed to travel for work and wearily asked me if I would need some rye flour or gluten again. Seems like he has finally resigned to fate, which is nice! I was kind and asked him to only pick up some cheese since he was in Amsterdam. He did and has been asking me to add cheese to everything I make. So when I picked this theme of ‘One protein three dishes’, I knew it simply had to be cheese. So here is the first of my three ‘cheesy’ dishes which is a quick and comparatively healthy snack for adults and kids alike.

1/2 tsp Baking soda

Few coriander leaves

Salt

Water

  • Add baking soda and give it a quick mix
  • Pour the batter into the appe pan till it is almost full

  • Once the top part seems cooked, turn it over with a spoon and cook uncovered for 1-2 minutes
  • Take it off from the pan and repeat for the remaining batter

NOTES

  1. I used matured goat cheese but cheddar should also work just as well
  2. Green chillies and ginger can be reduced or omitted if making for kids
