Paniyaram Recipe | How to Make Use of Leftover Idli Batter

2:01 PM

Paniyaram also known as paddu is an instant and yummy dish made out of leftover idli batter. It is made using a special pan called paniyaram pan or the appe pan. I am wondering how a simple idli batter can be used in making yummy varieties. You add a little water in the batter and make it into dosa, and then there are variety of dosa that can be made. The same idli batter can also used in making these paniyarams. If you are bored of eating idlis, then do try out this easy variety. Few years back, I never dreamt that I will be venturing into South Indian cuisines, thanks to my son who got the liking of the regional taste from his school.

I usually make this quick recipe for breakfast and also pack a few pieces for my kid's snack in school. Sometimes, I also give it to him as an after school snacks along with coconut chutney.

There are many varieties of paniyarams as well. While I do my research, you enjoy this simple and yummy variety today.
