How to make Paniyaram: Indian Breakfast Recipe
Sweet and Kara Paniyaram
Paniyaram is a popular snack item in India and is served as breakfast or as evening tiffin. It is made from fermented rice and urad dal batter mixed with some indian spices. It can be made both salty and sweet. Children love the sweet ones. It's another variant of the dosa, made out of almost the same ingredients; crisp on the outside and soft on the inside batter.
Paniyaram made of special pan with Kuzhis (holes) where the batter is poured. Chutneys go well along with them. I have also included a link to a paniyaram recipe video at the end of this hub. Check it out.

Do not cook paniyaram on high heat. Always cook the paniyaram on medium flame or else it would end up too dark on the outside and half cooked on the inside batter.
