How to make peanut and dal chutney?
First, take a pan, add dal, and dry roast them for 3 to 4 minutes on medium flame. When it turns light brown in color, remove it from heat. Soak it with some water for 25 to 30 minutes.
Dry roast some peanuts for 5 to6 minutes on medium to high flame. When it turns light brown remove it and leave it to cool down. After that remove the skin of peanuts.
Now take a jar, add roasted peanuts.
Add soaked dal, ginger, chilies, and salt. Add some water and grind it for 2 to 3 minutes.
While grinding, add water in batches and make a smooth puree like this.
Now, for tempering take a pan. Heat it for a minute on medium flame. Add oil, hing, curry leaves, black mustard seeds, and red chilies. When it starts to splutter. Turn off the heat.
Add chutney. And mix well. If you like thin chutney then add more water and mix well. Or if you like thick chutney like me, then leave this.

How to make Rava appam?
Take a jar, add semolina. You can use thick or thin semolina for this recipe.
Add curd. Do not use sour curd.
Add water in batches. First add 1 up of water. And grind it.
While grinding you can add more water in it and grind. We want flowing consistency.
The batter is neither too thick nor thin. Make sure that you have to make this batter a little bit thin from the dosa batter. But not too thin. If you want to store this batter then you can store it for 2 days in the fridge. But do not add ENO.
Now add flavourless ENO. Add ENO when you are ready to make appam.
Add a tbsp water.
And mix well. Do not over-mix the batter. In this recipe, ENO gives a fluffy and porous texture to the appam.
Here, you can use non-stick tava or cast iron tava for this recipe. If you are using cast iron then do not forget to season it first to make them non-stick. You can check my dosa recipe that how you make the iron tava nonstick easily.
Take a tava and heat it for 2 to 3 minutes on high flame. Make sure that your tava is non-stick. Then turn the flame on medium. Now, take a half ladle batter.
Pour it in the center and do not spread it more.
Cook it for 2 minutes on medium to high flame. When the upper surface is completely dry then it is ready to remove. Make all of them like this.
