Guliappa with a Twist!(Two Lentil Aappo)

Guliappa, Aappo or Paddu as this is called in different parts of Karnataka, is a popular breakfast snack. It can be made in different ways. Though it is customary to use only Urad Daal in aappo with or without added rice, recently, a friend passed on a wonderful recipe to make soft tasty and nutritious aappo with two lentils, namely urad Daal and Chana Daal.
This has ginger and chillies in it, which normally kids hate but they are so cleverly used, nobody can make out their presence but only their subtle flavour and taste! Make these on a rainy day and you may be tempted to skip lunch and have these with sambar or some nice curry!

1. Rice - 2 cups
2. Urad Daal - 1 cup
3. Chana Daal - 1/4 cup
4. Salt - To taste
5. Soda Bicarb - A pinch
6. Oil/Ghee - Sufficient for seasoning and roasting
7. Onions - 3-4 medium chopped
8. Green Chillies - 4 Chopped
9. Ginger - 1" piece grated
10. Coriander Leaves - A small bunch chopped
11. Curry Leaves - A sprig chopped
12. Asafotoeda - A pinch

Soak rice and the two daals separately for 2-3 hours.
Drain and grind separately.
Grind urad daal to a smooth paste
Grind rice and chana daal coarsely.
Mix all the batter together and ass salt and a pinch of soda bicarb.
Prepare a seasoning with ingredients 7 till 12.
Add the seasoning to the batter and mix well.
Allow to ferment for 2-3 hours and then prepare aappos in greased aappo pan.
Roast well on both sides and serve with any coconut based chutney or sambar.
