  • Add the jaggery to approx. 1/4 cup of water.

  • Now slowly using a strainer, strain the jaggery liquid in to the flour mixture.
  • Stir well, add some more liquid if needed to make a thick batter.
  • Make sure the batter is lump free.
  • Heat the paniyaram pan/puff pan.
  • In each section, add about 1/4 tsp of oil.
  • Once the oil is hot, drop spoonful of the batter in the pan.
