Kuzhi Paniyaram (Spicy)
This is one of the famous dish in chettinad side of Tamilnadu. I generally use idly batter itself for preparing this and havent felt the taste as less in any ways. This is one of our favourite dish which will be there every sunday. Spicy tomato chutney and coconut chutney are the best combination for this.
Onion, green chilly, corriander leaves - finely chopped
Salt - little
Mustard seeds, urad dhal - for seasoning
Mix all the ingrediants. Make sure the batter is not so thick and not so watery. It has to be in medium thickness.
Now heat the paniyaram kadai and add oil in each of the hollow.
Once the oil is hot enough, pour little batter in each of the hollow. Increase the flame and wait till one side is cooked nicely.
Now with the help of a sharp spoon, turn the paniyaram so that the other side gets cooked well.
Once the paniyaram is cooked and turns golden brown in colour, remove from the kadai and serve hot with any spicy chutney :)
Grated carrot can also be added to the batter for variation. Try it and let me know your comments.
