Appa / Yeriyappa

       

I was talking to a friend the other day and she noted a very valid point about my posts. "You hardly have any sweets on Mane Adige", she said. I immediately checked back, and she was right!!!! It's been a while since I posted the recipe for any sweet dish... So, here goes!!!

This dish is again Karnataka's traditional dish and is called "Appa" in Mangalore - Udupi regions and " Eriyappa or Yeriyappa" in Bangalore - Mysore regions.... It's main ingredients being rice, banana and jaggery. I used the non-stick appam pan that I got from India last time. However, you could even use the "Pancake Puffs" pan that you get in the American stores. If you have neither, you could even deep fry - make the batter a little thick and drop into the heated oil spoon by spoon.

Ingredients:

1 cup White rice, soaked in water for about 3-4 hrs

1/2 cup Grated coconut, fresh/frozen

2 Ripe Bananas, mashed

1/2 cup Jaggery

1 tbsp Sugar (optional)

1 tsp Powdered Elaichi

Method:

  1. Grind rice, coconut, jaggery and banana to a smooth paste; Make sure to add VERY LITTLE water while grinding. Add sugar, elaichi powder and mix well. Note:  Sugar is an optional ingredient. Adding some sugar gives a golden brown color to the eriyappa.
  2. Heat the appam pan on low- medium heat.
  3. Add a couple of drops on oil in each depression of the pan; Fill the depressions with the prepared batter. Cook covered on low heat - increasing the heat might burn the outer parts of the eriyappa while the inside is still uncooked.
  4. Turn eriyappa with the help  of a spoon and cook on both sides; Remove from pan and drain on paper towels; Serve hot and enjoy!!

Variation: You could even use jackfruit instead of bananas.

Prep Time: About 20-30 mins, excluding soaking time

Makes: About 15-20

You do not need any skills and more necessary rohan crone for a regular attack, but it still looks like you are using a skill. The armors and weapons which we can use our own rohan gold to buy our favorite is looking very nice. In some places you can not understand what you are doing and sometimes you did not know why and where need to spend the expensive and more rohan online crone. You can bring your own rohan money to buy Still Scroll from shop and use it on someone who you think might use bots in game. If he is confirmed to use bots later, you will get 3 equipments and some rohan online gold from him.
You need to go through long distances sometimes, making you buy a lot of Teleport scrolls with your Rose zuly just to go to the cities. The quests are OK and have a good storyline so far, and you will gain a good amount of experience by grinding and rose zulie too. Something I liked in this game was the nice design of the clothes can have from rose online zuly. There also armor also can gain from rose online zulie sets that can be wore by any class. Another nice thing that I would like to talk about, is that you can have nice Arua ROSE zuly in ROSE Online.
