chettinad Kuzhi paniyaram

Chettinad Kuzhi Paniyaram recipe, a most popular South Indian Breakfast made usually with leftover idli/dosa batter. Recipe with full video and step by step pictures. Most of the times I make kuzhi paniyaram using leftover idli batter. But this time I learnt this recipe from my friend. She gave me the exact recipe for making kuzhi paniyaram as how they make in their native place. It turned out so well and it was super soft and fluffy. After that, I stopped making paniyarams out of leftover idli | dosa batter. Check out my tomato kuzhi paniyaram and instant rava kuzhi paniyaram. This chettinad kuzhi paniyaram recipe is a super hit among my guests too.

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.
