A friend and a new Kuzhi Paniyaram batter recipe
  1. Soak rice and udal dal with enough water for 4-5 hours
  2. Grind the rice and udad dal in a mixie or grinder into a smooth batter
  3. While grinding add a tsp of salt and mix well
  4. Pour the batter in a large vessel and leave it aside closed with a lid for 6-8 hours to ferment.
  5. Once the batter is fermented, check the salt levels and add as required
  6. Wash the paniyaram vessel well with water and dry it with a cloth
  7. Place the vessel on medium flame on the stove and brush oil into each mold.
  8. Once the mold is hot add the batter and cover it with a lid ( one can use the plain batter or could add all the veggies to the batter and use that).
  9. Once one side of the batter is cooked and has a golden colour, turn the white (wet) side facing down and cook without the lid. ( one can use a spoon to turn the paniyaram over to cook on both sides)
  10. Once both sides are cooked and have a golden colour, remove them from the mold and serve them hot with coconut or tomato chutney.
  11. Repeat the process till you run out of batter 🙂
