Rava kara kuzhi paniyaram
Instant Rava kuzhi paniyaram is an easy South indian breakfast recipe. This recipe using sooji | rava as the main ingredient. I saw this post in instagram long back and noted down the recipe. In that recipe, they used Instant MTR Rava idli mix. As i had posted rava idli already, i thought i will make my own batter instead of using the MTR rava idli mix. The paniyarams turned out crispy outside and soft inside. Check out my other South indian breakfast recipes too. this can be served for dinner or can be served as an evening snack | tiffin.
