Kuzhi Paniyaram is basically a popular South Indian breakfast dish. It is generally made using the left over Idly Dosa batter in a cast iron paniyaram pan. . I never prepare paniyarams using left over idly batter , I always prepare the batter for Paniyaram from scratch and to make it more healthy I hvave added makka cholam flour/ jowar flour along with rice and urad dal. I have added schezwan sauce to the batter to make this snack a favourite one for kids too. A very healthy and delicious snacks loved by one and all.
