KUZHI PANIYARAM


Kuzhi Paniyaram takes a special place in Chettinad cuisine. Kuzhi paniyaram can be made either sweet or savory. As I have a savory tooth more than of sweet, I often prepare this kara kuzhi paniyaram at home. Kara kuzhi paniyaram can be made easily with the leftover idli batter by adding little ingredients.

INGREDIENTS:

Idli batter – 2 cups
Onions (finely chopped) -1 cupGrated ginger- 1 tspGreen chilli (finely chopped) –6-7 Curry leaves-a few
Coriander leaves-handfulOil – As required.
Salt – As required

SEASONING ITEMS:

Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
Urad dal – 1 tsp

METHOD:

· Heat oil in kadai, add the seasoning items, when they are ready, add the curry leaves, ginger, green chilies, and onion one by one, add little salt. When the onions have become light brown, add this to the idli batter. Add the chopped coriander leaves to this and mix well.

· Heat the paniyaram pan and add 1 teaspoon of oil in all the impressions. Pour the batter in them. After few minutes, turn the paniyaram so that it gets cooked on the other side.

· Serve hot with onion-tomato chutney or sambar or any side dish of your choice.
