KUZHI PANIYARAM

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. Check out my tomato kuzhi paniyaram and instant rava kuzhi paniyaram.

Kuzhi paniyaram

  Preparation Time : 15 mins+ fermentation 10 hrs | Cooking Time : 25 Mins |Serves: 4-5

    Raw rice    1 cup
    Idli rice     1 cup
    Urad dal    1/2 cup
    Methi seeds | venthayam  1 tsp
    Onion   1
    Green chili   2
    Coconut  1 tblsp (finely chopped)
    Salt  as needed
    Oil   as needed to cook the paniyarams
    Channa dal  2 tsp

  • If you are adding coconut bits add at this stage.

  • Keep in a medium flame.
  • Flip this with the help of a fork or the wooden stick which comes with the non stick pan.

  • Serve hot with coconut chutney or spicy red chutney.

Kuzhi paniyaram
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.

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.
