Kuzhi paniyaram is one of my favourite dish when paired with the yummm tomato or pudhina chutney.Basically i prepare these paniyaram's instatly with left over idli batter. By now most of my fellow bloggers would know that i am a health freak and i peep deep in to the nutrition fact of each food i cook at home. So this time i have added spinach / palak to make the simple paniyaram a more healthier one !!!
Preparation Time : 10 Minutes
Cooking Time : 10 Mins
Serves : 2
Left over Idli Batter : 3 cups
Spinach - 1 cup - finely chopped
Onion - 3/4 cup - Finely Chopped
Green Chilli - 2 - 3 or accordingly - Finely Chopped
Mustard - 1 tsp
Urad Dal - 1 teaspoon
Salt -a pinch if required (as there is already salt added in the idli batter )
Heat a teaspoon of oil in a tadka pan, add mustard, let it splutter, now add urad dal fry until golden brown. Finally add a pinch of asafoedita. Mix all the ingredients together along with the mustard tadka and mix well and keep it aside.
Now heat a paniyaram pan, grease it with little oil, pour a spoonful of the batter to the pan and cook covered on medium flame until it turns golden brown, similarly turn the other side and cook untill golden brown. Serve hot with any chutney of your choice.
This can be served as a snack or as breakfast !!
