How to make Moong Dal Paniyaram

  1. Wash moong thoroughly and soak it in fresh water and leave it aside for 5-6 hrs. Soak Chana Dal (Bengal Gram) separately in a small bowl.
  2. Drain out the water from the green gram and grind it along with ginger, cumin Seeds, 3 green chillies and salt to smooth and medium thick batter.
  3. Take the batter in a bowl and add rice flour, remaining green chillies sliced, finely chopped onions, coriander, chana dal, baking soda and mix well.
  4. Add the seasoning to the batter and mix well.
  5. Leave this mixture aside for some time. It should not be left out at room temperature. Keep in the fridge if not using.
  6. Heat the Paniyaram pan, and once it is hot drizzle some drops of oil in each dent and pour in one teaspoon of batter in each dent. Ensure the batter is at room temperature by then.
  7. Cover with a lid and let it cook for 3-4 minutes.
  8. Turn the paniyaram on the other side and again close the lid. Let it cook for another 3-4 minutes.
  9. Once the colour turns to golden brown and crispy remove them from the pan. Repeat this process for the next set of paniyarams.
  10. Serve with any chutney or pickle of your choice.
