KUZHI PANIYARAM – SAVOURY VERSION.

AUTHENTIC CHETTINAD STYLE.

        Kuzhi Paniyaram  is a common South Indian Breakfast made usually with leftover idli/dosa batter,and  even i have made it  several times. But this time i learnt this from my friend ,who gave me exact recipe of making kuzhi paniyaram in their native place. It turned out so well and it was super soft and fluffy. From that i stopped making paniyarams out of left over idli/dosa batter.

  • Serve hot with coconut chutney or spicy red chutney.

Note:

  1. The batter should be not too thick or too watery.This has to be slightly thin than idli batter,but little thick than the dosa batter.
  2. If you want u can add green chillies while grinding the batter itself as we do for vadas.
  3. The leftover batter can be used for making dosa as it comes very great.
  4. You can replace green chillies with red chilli powder also.

  29. Grinding specifically for kuzhi paniyaram does result in softer ones.. i use similar proportions except for urad dhal - only 1/4 cup instead of 1/2 cup. Looks very good Jeyashri.
