sweet+paniyaram

       I am a big fan of these paniyarams…that too from my mom’s hand…But after marriage,when I tried making,sometimes I will get it right but mostly flop….That’s because I will not be accurate in measures….But now,I think I am getting it right,slowly….!Just similar to my mom’s!!! I think the sweet version is mostly all you know,but the spicy version is uncommon I think…so here we go with the two recipes….
Perfect for evening snack or even starter for dinner.

sweet paniyaram


Idly rice 1 cup
Thoor dhal/Thuvaram paruppu 2 tblsp
Fenugreek seeds/Vendhayam 3/4 tsp
Urad dal 1 tblsp
Jaggery 1/2 cup
Salt As needed
Water As needed for grinding
Elachi 1 no.
Cooking soda(optional) 1 pinch
Coconut grated(optional) 2 tblsp
Ghee/oil As needed

Method:

  1. Soak rice,thoor dal,urad dal and fenugreek seeds for minimum 3 hours and grind to a smooth paste.(consistency thicker than idly dosa batter)
  2. Set aside for Minimum 2-3 hours.
  3. At the moment you are going to make,add powdered jaggery,elachi,salt,cooking soda and coconut gratings(if desired) and mix well.
  4. Wait for 10 min for jaggery to get mixed well.(or you can make jaggery syrup and mix apparently)
  5. Heat the paniyaram pan and grease it with ghee or oil.(I use 1 or 2 tsp altogether for the 7 kuzhis/hollows)
  6. Pour the batter careful in each hollow and cook covered in medium low flame.

  7. Then turn and cook for another 2 minutes or till golden brown.
  8. Serve hot as evening snack!!

Kara paniyaram

This one tastes like our adai but no onion in this one…

kharapaniyaram

Ingredients:

Idly rice 1 cup
Channa dal 1 fist full
Thoor dhal 2 tblsp
Urad dhal 2 tblsp
Sago/ poha 2 tblsp
Asafetida 2-3 generous pinches
Red chillies 5-8 nos
Salt & water as needed
Curry leaves 1 sprig
Oil as needed

Method:
  1. Soak the rice separately and dals with sago/poha together for 3 hours.
  2. First grind red chillies,salt and asafetida,then add the soaked rice,grind until rawa/sooji consistency  and lastly the dhal.
  3. And grind to a coarse paste(like rava/sooji).Let the batter be thick not too watery. Add curry leaves. Keep aside for few hours if possible.
  4. Pour into the greased hollows as we said for the sweet one. cook covered in medium flame.
  5. Cook on both sides to golden brown and serve hot with coconut chutney!!

Notes :
  • Possible fact for paniyaram being hard is less water. Add more water and mix and try again.
  • Paniyaram sticking to the pan? More soda or water or urad dal or methi seeds.  To balance this, you can either add some maida or rice flour to the batter and try again.
  • If you are making for dinner,try grinding in the afternoon or even morning for best soft results of paniyaram.
  • For Kara paniyaram, donot grind the dal smoothly as it will give you hard paniyarams,you have to let it coarse. Just grind the rice first smoothly if you want,thats enough.

  45. Hi raks, tried ur sweet paniyaram recipe with same ingredient but dint turn out as looked in the pictures, the batter became very loose after adding jaggery hence became very liquid kind not sure why.. Sweet was very less tred adding sugar then it turned out black.. Not sure what's the problem

    ReplyDelete
  46. The batter must have gone watery. Try grinding thicker batter and sure after adding jaggery it becomes little more watery. 1/2 cup jaggery should be enough to sweeten, u added a pinch of salt? it enhances the sweetness.

  47. hi, i have got a new paniyaram thavva, i wanted to knw how to start with tht? should i have to grease oil or ghee on d thavva before i start using it ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes for the first time be generous by greasing it with more oil or ghee. Is it a non stick or iron pan?
