Kuzhi Paniyaram.

I feel like having some kuzhi paniyaram right now. Just the thought of it makes me want it. :). One of my top favorites and not S's [for a change ;)]. This paniyaram is a traditional chettinadu tiffin item usually had with milagai chutney.

Kuzhi Paniyaram, though simple and easy to make , is time consuming if you are cooking for many people [ read >2]. My mom when she makes this, moves the stove to the floor from the kitchen slab, sits down and makes them patiently for me, my sis and dad.And each of us would gobble up more than 20-30 paniyarams. :)

Kuzhi Paniyaram


Ingredients

Dosai batter - 4 cups
Fenugreek powder - 1/2 Tbspn
Oil - as required
You also need a kuzhi paniyaram pan like the one in the picture to make this.




Method

Mix dosa batter and fenugreek powder well. Heat the paniyram pan. Add a 2-3 drops of oil in each of the holes. When the oil is warm, take a ladle full of batter and drop into each hole until its 3/4 full. Do not fill the paniyaram up-to the brim, you will find it difficult to turn the paniyarams over later.The flame needs to be medium-low to make sure the paniyarams are cooked inside as well.After a couple of minutes once the bottom of paniyaram browns, using a  wooden skewer turn the paniyaram over to cook the other side. Once both sides are done transfer to a plate. Serve warm with tasty milagai chutney.

Notes

You many also heat a tbsp of oil in a pan, add in some mustard, jeera, chopped onions , curry leaves, green chili and saute them for  a few minutes . Pour this tempering into the dosa batter with methi/fenugreek powder and mix well to get a more flavorful batter for the paniyarams.
