Kara Paniyaram

Kuzhi Paniyaram can be made two ways - sweet and karam. Growing up I remember my mom used to make lots of sweet paniyaram and we loved it! But now, my husband and my daughter does not prefer eating anything sweet so I always end up making this kara paniyaram. 

Kara Paniyaram

This dish is a great way to finish up the dosa batter and it brings a variety in our daily breakfast menu. I make uthapam on the 3rd or 4th day of the dosa batter and then on the 5th day of the batter, I make this paniyaram. 
You can also pack this in kids snack boxes and you can make this for evening snacks as well.

3. Add the coriander leaves, mix and switch off.

4. Add this to the dosa batter and mix well and remove the chillies
5. Add a drop of oil in each cavity of the paniyaram pan and spread well.

6. Add a small ladle full of batter in each cavity.
