Kuzhi Paniyaram | Savory Unniyappam

Paniyaram or savory unniyappam is a popular savory snack in the blogosphere made of made out of left over dosa/idli batter.Blogging introduced me to this wonder guilt free snack and thanx to all my friends who introduced the recipe to me.Now,this has become a regular snack at home and sometimes breakfast too.Everyone loves it at home and is quite healthy too.I hooked this recipe from 'show me the curry.com',this is a real delicious snack if you love savory.The only change I made in this recipe is I added corn kernels to it.Kids really love the crunchy and sweet corn kernels in the balls.These days am going quite busy with a number of activities going around at home,Thanx to all wishes on my hubby's birthday dearies..Conveyed all.Last weekend we had our group Onam celebration,now next week its my younger son's birthday coming up.So,now you can imagine the amount of work extra laid on me and that's the reason of my irregular visits in blogs.Hopefully by next week I'll be free,so enjoy this yummy snack at home !!

perfectly made paniyarams!what a beautiful presentation!!

Julie said... Best Blogger Tips

Thanx all:)
@Farah Saleem azeez I referred the pan as paniyaram pan or the Dutch pan looks similar to this, Farah..mini idli pans is something we can steam idlis ryt?? But this is placed directly on stove top just like other frying pans..:)

Beena.stephy said... Best Blogger Tips

Delicious one good snack

Julie said... Best Blogger Tips

@Lizy
The paniyarams are soft appams not hollow dear just like idlis but paniyaram is crisp outside unlike idlis :)

Julie said... Best Blogger Tips

@radha skewers does do the trick but you also have to wait for the top sides of the appams too turn slightly crisp so that the batter doesn't overflow when flipping, otherwise you end up messing the whole.. Keep the flame always on medium too:)

Looks majestic. Simple recipe & dosa batter is always available, so a staple at home. But I have never added corn as an ingredient, I should try!
Also Julie, when you get time can you make "Vatteppam"?
Long back one of my college mates brought this to our hostel while coming back from vacation & it was a huge success among us!!
