Kuzhi Paniyaram

A wonderful breakfast for this weekend

For this Paniyaram you need

2 cups of  raw rice
1 cup of boiled rice
1/2 cup of urad dhal
2 tsp. of Fenugreek seed
3 onions
4 green chillies
1 tsp. of mustard and urad dhal
1 tsp. of Channa dhal
Salt to taste

For Grinding

Soak both rice together for 2 hrs.

Soak urad dhal along with fenugreek also for 2 hrs.

Grind them as we grind for Idli. Add salt and mix it well.

Allow this batter to ferment.(approximately 10 - 12 hrs.)


Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard and urad dhal . when they stop spluttering add the curry
 leaves, chopped onions and green chillies. Saute them well.

Add this sauted ingredients to the batter and mix well.

Heat the Paniyaram pan ( paniyarakal) and  grease the holes with little oil .

Now pour the batter in these holes. Close the pan. 

When the upper side is cooked turn to the other side. (u might see the bottom side in golden brown). cook for 5 mins. on the other side as well.

Take them from the pan and serve it hot with tomato or coconut chutney

OPTIONAL : We can also add only onions and chilly without sauteing. That will give a different taste. Sometimes I go by this way.
