I tell you....these are the quickest and easiest starters or snacks whatever you may call....
Whenever I made these, the guests who ate this were totally stunned, they showered accolades!!!
So, here's a step wise method as to how to make it....

Dosa batter , well fermented - 4-5 cups
Rice flour - 2 tsps
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Green chillies - 2-3
Pearl onions - 15
Red bell pepper - 1, small
Green bell pepper - 1, small

We can also use Green chutney with onion, without onion or tomato chutney. Only thing we have to remember is, chutney has to be of a thick consistency. 

Enough oil to make the chutney bombs

Recipe cuisine: South Indian; Category: Starter/snacks
Prep time: 10 mts; Cooking time: 10-12 minutes for each batch

Yields roughly 35-40 bombs

Pearl onions, bell peppers and green chillies pulsed and chopped fine with a hand chopper

Batter being added to the veggies

Rice flour and salt added

All mixed well

Chutney ground and ready

Appe pan heated, greased, 1/2 tsp oil poured into each kuzhi/cavity/pit, and the batter poured to slightly less than half cavity, and topped with 1/2 tsp of chutney gently, while the flames continue to be on the lowest

Chutney covered with 1 tsp of batter again

Covered with a lid to enable even and slow cooking

When one side done, gently flipped over

Any kind of chutney can be used for these bombs...My chutney varieties

Enjoy these unique starters, but you need lot of perseverance and patience..."Shraddha" & "Saburi", since if you are in a hurry, they might break.
