Kuzhi Paniyaaram

I had not had kuzhi paniyaaram until I came across this in Mahimaa's blog. I asked my special friend to get the paniyaara kal (the cast iron pan used to make sweet and savory paniyaarams) from India and tried this really easy and yummy snack :-).

Ingredients (about 2 - 3 servings):

Dosa batter - about 3 cups (using a measuring cup)

Onions - about 1/4 cup (using a measuring cup) finely chopped

Ginger - 1 teaspoon finely chopped

Green chillies - 2 finely chopped

Oil - a drop for each hole in the paniyaara kal

Salt to taste


Procedure:


1. Mix the chopped onions, ginger, green chillies and salt to taste with the dosa batter.

2. Heat the paniyaara kal and add a drop of oil into each hole once it gets hot.
3. Spoon the batter from step 1 into the holes and cook both sides by flipping until golden brown in color.

This can be had as is or with any chutney/pickle of your choice. I had some puli inji in my refrigerator and it tasted good with it :-).

I luv em. A suggestion. saute onions, chilli, grated ginger, curry leaves n cilantro in cooking oil tempered with mustard seeds, black gram (ulundu) n (kalla parupu). More delicious.
this is how we make it in my home. n we serve it with coconut chutney :)
