  • 2 cups - Dosa or idli batter

How to Make Paniyarams

  • Fry onions, ginger and green chillies finely cut into small pieces in a small quantity of coconut oil to get good flavour.
  • Add a little pepper and salt. Add coriander leaves. After frying for a few minutes, mix these with the batter (dough).
  • Place the paniyaaram vessel (also called paniyaaram stone) on the stove. Pour small amounts of cooking oil into the semi-circular holes.
  • After the oil gets hot, using a large spoon, pour the dough mixture into the holes in such a way and in such quantities that the batter does not overflow.
  • The dough begins to get fried in the oil. Keep adding little drops of oil for the entire mixture to get deep fry.
  • After a while, using a butter knife, turn around the paniyaarams in the holes so that the uncooked portions also get fried.
  • In a few minutes, hot paniyarms will be ready. A very handy dish for Sundays and holidays.
