I use the idli batter itself to make these Kuzhipaniyaram. It is also known as Paddu in Karnataka. So, sharing a detailed recipe to make some delicious kara paniyaram today.
Kuzhipaniyaram / Kara paniyaram
- 4 cups Idli Batter - 4 cups check the post for idli batter recipe
- Salt as per taste
- 1 Onions finely chopped
- 1 tsp Mustard seeds
- 1 sprig Curry Leaves
- 2 tsp Urad dal/white lentil - 2 tsp
- 3 Green Chilies finely chopped
- 1/4 cup Grated coconut
- 1 Carrot grated
- 8 tbsp Sesame oil
Heat oil in a frying pan and add the mustard seeds. When the mustard seeds crackle add urad dal, curry leaves and saute until lentils turns golden brown. Transfer the content in a mixing bowl with batter.
Next add the chopped onion, green chillies, grated carrot and grated coconut in the mixing bowl.
Add salt to taste and mix well.
Now heat the paniyaram kallu/appe pan for a minute. Lower the flame and add 1 tsp of oil in each hole.
Pour the batter into the holes and cook it in low flame. Once it starts turning light brown, flip the paniyaram to the other side
Add few drops of oil in each hole and cook until it turns golden brown.
Serve it hot with coconut chutney.
