Paruppu Paniyaram:(Chettinad Style)
Lentils Paniyaram. Dhal Paniyaram. Parippu Paniyaram.
Nothing much to say...I like chettinad cuisine. Especially their wide array of paniyarams:) I prefer 'Paruppu Paniyaram'(Mixed Lentils Puff?!!)better, as it is good source of protein. Unlike deep fried/shallow fried vadai it consumes less oil, so guilt free indulgence.
Urad just few spoons
Rice few spoons
Soda 1 pinch
Ginger 2" grated
Green chilies 3 finely chopped
Cilantro few chopped
Asafoetida 1/4 spoon
Cumin seeds 1/4 spoon
Ghee/ Pam spray oil/ oil few spoons.
Soak the lentils and rice together for 2-4 hours and wet grind them coarsely.
Now throw in all the above mentioned items, except oil.
Heat the paniyaram/puff skillet, spray oil. Ladle down the batter. Cook over medium heat and turn them using fork/needle. Cook the other side too.
Is it ready?? Then what, flip them...serve yourself, enjoy:)
