Kuzhi Paniyaram/Appe

Hi Friends,
Posting the recipe of Famous Kuzhi Paniyaram of South India.
Kuzhi paniyaram is one of the tastiest breakfast dish prepared with a batter similar to idli/dosa batter.
I follow the recipe of my sister in law Abirami.
Kuzhi Paniyaram

Note down the recipe and just gorge on it friends.


Ideal measure for batter

Idli Rice(par boiled) - 2 cups
Raw white rice - 2 cups
Udad dal/uluthamparuppu - 1 cup
Methi seeds/Fenugreek seeds/Vendhayam -Heap(Gopuram) over Udad dal (may come around 1 tbsp)

Above measure can be used in south states where rice flour obtained from raw rice is more.

But I used this measure

Idli Rice- 2 and 3/4 cups
Raw white rice - 1 and 1/4 cup
Udad dal - 1 cup
Methi -heap over udad dal

Onions chopped -3
Curry leaves - chopped
Coriander leaves - chopped

Can add chopped ginger,coconut,green chillies if you want.


Soak rice,udad dal,methi seeds together in water  for 3 to 4 hours.Grind them.Add salt and ferment the batter for 7 to 8 hours
To the fermented batter,add chopped onions,coriander leaves,curry leaves etc .
Heat the Paniyaram pan,add little oil in cavities.It is not necessary to add more oil to cook paniyaram.It can be cooked with optimum oil.
Add the batter to the cavities,close it with a lid and cook in medium flame.

After one side is properly cooked,turn them carefully and cook till golden brown and crispy.

Serve hot paniyarams with chutney.
