Paddu or Gundpongalu or Appe as it is called in Kannada,these are in between version of  dosa and idli',they have a shape of small idli's but  crispy and taste's like dosa.You will forget the count when eating with thick  coconut chutney for sure...:).This  is my mother's recipe,you can also add grated carrots and other veggies to make it more tasty and colourful...ENJOY!
