Ingredients Serving: 4

  1. Raw rice 1 cup
  2. Urad dal 3/4 cup
  3. Coconut Milk 1 Cup
  4. Sugar 1 tsp
  5. Cardamom 2-3
  6. Saffron- a pinch/few strands
  7. Oil to deep fry
  8. Water to soak
  9. Salt to taste
  10. Boiled milk 1 cup


  1. Soak the raw rice and urad dal for a minimum of 4 hours.
  2. Take thick milk from the coconut add in boiled milk, sugar, saffron and cardamom powder to the cool milk and stir well. Set aside the prepared milk.
  3. Grind the soaked rice and urad dal together to a smooth and thick batter by adding very little water. (Do not let this batter ferment, it needs to be immediately fried.)
  4. Heat oil in a deep pan on a medium heat. Add very small drops of batter to the hot oil by using a teaspoon or your fingers. Fry the paniyarams on a medium heat for 2 mins (the fried paniyaram need to be white in color, not golden brown).
  5. Keep a large bowl of hot water by the side. Drain the fried paniyaram from the oil and add it to the water in the bowl. Let the paniyaram soak in this water for a few seconds, then drain the paniyaram from the water and add it to the prepared coconut milk. (This process is to remove the oil, otherwise you will see some oil on the milk).
  6. Serve the Chettinad Paal Paniyaram warm or cold as preferred.
