Sweet paniyaram | Kara paniyaram recipe

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 kara paniyaram recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Breakfast/ Dinner
Prep Time: 5 hr soaking and standing time    |  Cook time: 35 mins    Serves: 4

Ingredients

Idli rice - 1 cup

Toor dhal/Thuvaram paruppu - 2 tbsp

Fenugreek seeds/Vendayam - 3/4 tsp

Urad dal - 3 tblsp

Jaggery - 1/2 cup

Salt - As needed

Water - As needed for grinding

Cardamom - 1

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.

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.
  • You can grind this in Mixie, makes it simple and easy job.
