South Indian Sweet Paniyaram Recipe using Idli batter
Prep time - under 5 mins (provided you have idli batter ready)
Cook time - under 15 mins
Yields -13-14 small paniyarams
Idli batter - 11/2 cup
Jaggery - 5 tbsp or as required
Grated coconut - 3 tbsp
Cardamom powder - a pinch
Salt - a pinch
Ghee or a mix of ghee and oil for cooking paniyarams
Mix together idli batter, jaggery, grated coconut, a pinch of salt and cardamom powder. The batter should be thick as once the jaggery dissolves, the batter will become slightly thin.(so use thick idli batter without salt)
Heat the paniyaram pan and then add 1/2 a tsp of oil in each hole (kuzhi) of the pan.
Then fill in the holes with the prepared batter.(fill only up to 3/4)
Cover and cook on medium flame. Once the bottom starts browning, using a skewer or spoon, flip it over gently to the other side.
Cook the other side uncovered until golden brown. Keep an eye on it as it will turn brown very quickly.
Remove from the pan and serve hot. You do not need any side dish for this.
Note - Once you mix the jaggery, make paniyarams immediately.
Keep aside some idli batter without mixing salt, if you are planning to make this sweet paniyaram or vella paniyaram.
