I got this recipe from my friend Shalini.I had some leftover rice lying in my pantry..I asked
her to suggest me some interesting recipes using it.She immediately
told me about this kuzhi paniyaram recipe.I ground the batter in the afternoon and
prepared paniyaram for dinner. It was very nice ,soft as well as puffy and we loved it very
much. . I used mixie to grind the batter which made my job much more easier.In
this recipe i used sour curd. So the batter takes less time to ferment ( For me
it took 4 hours). Based on the weather in ur place , the fermentation time
differs..It may need maximum of 6-8 hours. If u grind the batter in the morning / afternoon (around 1pm) , u can use it for dinner.But my friend told the paniyaram can be made
immediately after grinding the batter..Thank u so much Shalini for this yummy
recipe..Do try this friends , u’ll love it a lot.Adding cooking soda is a must for this recipe. U can also try ENO fruit salt instead of cooking soda.Hope it gives the same result. :)
Soak the raw rice and leftover rice for 2 hours.Then drain all the soaked
water and grind it to a smooth paste adding sour curd , green chillies ,salt
using required water.
After 4 hours , add cooking soda ,finely chopped onions , curry leaves and
coriander leaves.Mix well.Heat paniyaram pan. Add 1/2 tsp oil in each hole and pour the batter till 3/4 th of the pan.
Cover it with a lid and cook for few minutes. Then flip the paniyaram and cook
the other side for few more minutes..
Remove using a fork / spoon and serve it hot with chutney
Urad dal & methi seeds are not necessary for this recipe. But still the
paniyaram comes out fluffy and soft.
Please add the cooking soda just before u make paniyaram..
