Chettinad Egg Paniyaram | Mutta Appam (Step by Step Pics)

Have you thought of adding eggs to the kuzhi paniyaram to make it even more delicious? To be frank,I never thought about one neither had one unless I made these sometime back.This is a popular chettinad recipe.The best way to sneak in eggs to kids if you have kids like my little one who doesn't love eating eggs just like that but when sneaked in,it does work.This is another remake of your left out idli batter and makes a guilt free snack.I referred to the recipe here and believe me,it doesn't have any awful smell of egg too.Do give this a try if you have left over idli batter to make a less greasy snack !!

idli batter 1 cup
eggs  2
ground pepper 1/2 tsp
cilantro/coriander leaves 1 tbsp finely chopped
oil as required to toast
salt to taste

to temperad
oil  1 tsp
mustard Seeds 1 tsp
urad dal 1/2 tsp
chana dal 1/2 tsp
onion 1 large finely chopped
curry leaves 1 tbsp chopped finely

  • Whip the eggs in a blender until fluffy.Keep aside.
  • Heat a pan and add oil to temper.Splutter mustard seeds ,add in torn curry leaves,chana dal and urad dal.Add the onion and fry till slightly browned.

  • Add the idli batter in a large bowl ,add the whipped egg ,the tempered ingrdients,pepper powder,cilantro,salt.Mix well.
  • Heat a paniyaram pan and add few drops of oil in each.Pour spoonful of batter in each hole.Cover the pan with a lid and leave to cook for a minute.
  • Flip and turn the other side and cook half a minute.Using a skewer or fork ,take out each and place in a plate.
  • Repeat the same steps of frying till you finish the batter.
  • Serve warm with Mint chutney or just like that !!

* You can add broken nuts instead of urad dal tempering.
