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.
Kara paniyaramThis one tastes like our adai but no onion in this one…
Its a pleasure for me to send this to Monthly mingle – Ravishing Rice hosted by Nag’s of Cooking and me

This is also one of the recipes,that I got from my friend Sangeeta and tried.It tasted great. This is the first time I am trying and I liked it very much. I love the taste and this methi roti or methi thepla and will often make appearance in the kitchen. It comes out really soft and stays soft even after long time. So perfect to pack for your lunch box and boondi raita is the perfect side dish for methi roti. You can indulge without counting the numbers!
Serve with any simple raitha or simply with curd and pickle.I served with boondi raita and mango thokku! Tasted great!
