Ingredients to make Spicy Paniyaram

  • 2 cups Idly/ Dosa Batter
  • 1 finely chopped onion
  • 3 to 4 finely chopped green chillies
  • 1 tsp asafoetida
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves
  • 1/2 inch finely chopped ginger
  • 1 tbsp freshly grated coconut
  • salt to taste

How to make Spicy Paniyaram

  1. In a bowl, mix the onions, green chillies, coconut, ginger, coriander leaves and salt together and mash them roughly.
  2. Once done, mix this mixture in the Idly/Dosa batter bowl. Stir well.
  3. To prepare the paniyarams, we get a special paniyaram maker called paniyaram chatti, in Maharashtra it's basically called a Appe Patra. Heat this maker on the gas stove.
  4. Add a few drops of oil in each hole of the Paniayaram chatti. With the help of a spoon fill every hole with this batter.
  5. Now, cover the maker with a lid and let the paniyarams cook for 2 mins on a low or medium flame.
  6. Take out the lid and turn each paniyaram and cook the other side so that it gets crispy.
  7. Once cooked nicely from both the sides, take them out and serve these paniyarams with chutney.

My Tip:

You can also steam these paniyarams to make it more healthy.
