Masala Paniyaram

During our childhood days, whenever we get bored of idli/dosa, kuzhi paniyaram  is an immediate alternative Amma prepares with idli/dosa batter. For preparing this dish, Kuzhi paniyaram  stand and left over idli/dosa batter is all that’s needed. I tried savory version. If you don’t have kuzhi paniyaram pan, try frying it in oil to enjoy quick snack 🙂 For a variation you can Aldo check Adai paniyaram

Masala Paniyaram (Savory Rice Ball):

Preparation Time : 10 mins | Cooking Time : 10 mins | Serves : 3

Recipe Category: Breakfast

Ingredients:

Dosa/Idly batter – 2 cups

Idli Podi – 1 tsp

Finely chopped Onion – 1

Grated Carrots – 2

Hing – a generous pinch

Curry leaves – few, roughly chopped

Ginger – 1/8 tsp (optional)

Coriander leaves – Handful

Oil – to cook

Method

  • Add onion, carrot, Idli podi, coriander leaves, curry leaves, hing and ginger to the Idli batter

  • Heat the paniyaram pan. Add a little oil to each hole. Spoon the batter into the pan and cook for 2 minutes on one side

Image

  • After one side is cooked well, turn the paniyarams and cook the other side. Flip carefully and cook until it is done

My Notes:

  • Green chilli can be used instead of Idli podi
  • Can add 2 tbsp of wheat flour for a soft texture
