Adai Paniyaram – Savory Lentils & Rice Balls

Adai paniyaram is a different version of Kuzhi Paniyaram. Normally we make masala paniyaram with left over idly batter, for a change I tried Panniyaram with leftover Adai batter for breakfast. Adai batter is a mixture of rice and various lentils with flavors of ginger and red chillies. With this batter we generally make Adai Dosai.
