Ingredients

  • 1-2 tbsp Chopped coriander leaves
  • 1 tbsp Grated Coconut (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp Urad dal
  • 1/4 tsp Mustard
  • Oil / ghee

Instructions

  • Heat oil/ghee in a pan and crackle mustard and urad dal. Add sliced small onion, chopped ginger, green chilli and coconut. Fry it till the onion turns golden brown.
  • Add the fried items and chopped coriander leaves to the idli batter and mix well.
  • Heat oil in Paniyaram/Unniyappam pan. Make sure the oil is hot, but not smoking hot. Drop spoonfuls of the batter into hot oil and deep fry till golden brown. Flip the paniyaram, once, to cook both sides.

Notes

I got around 20 Paniyaram from the above qty. I used sunflower oil for cooking and frying. I used around 1/2-1 tsp of oil for each paniyaram. It's better to serve it hot/warm. Make sure the temp is correct, if it's too high, the outside may get browned fadt while the inside remains uncooked.
Heat the pan at first on med -high and once it's hot enough, reduce it to low-medium and continue cooking.

    .Ahh ! its in marias menu.. it got to be EASY and TASTY…. love u and ur recipes dear..

  • I ve never commented here i believe though I always check this site n tried sooo many recipes n many of them have got a place in my recipe book. One other thing I love is how u write up. It has some sincerity to it n very light too.
    I don’t check here every now n then , bt when im in a mood to try something different I come here first. And start reading all the unread posts then decide the recipe.
    my cooking style is , simple methods, availability of ingredients n time mostly.
    I never had a chance to have paniyaram n want to know whether it can be made like u make vada. I don’t have a unniappam pan
