Palm jaggery sweet paniyaram

I made this easy, healthy and a traditional sweet recipe - Karupatti paniyaram / Palm jaggery sweet paniyaram on New year day. Usually I make sweet paniyaram and Kara paniyaram recipe in two ways. One with leftover idli dosa batter and the other one is my MIL’s recipe that is prepared with a batter ground using rice and dals.

To make this sweet paniyaram recipe, I prepared a separate batter with idli rice, raw rice and urad dal. You can also use our regular idli dosa batter instead. Lets see how to make sweet paniyaram with palm jaggery / Karupatti paniyaram recipe with step by step pictures.
