Carrot Paniyaram : Carrot Paniyaram or Carrot Kuzhi paniyaram is an Indian dish made by steaming batter using a mould. The batter is made of black lentils and rice and is similar in composition to the batter used to make idli and dosa. Other names for paniyaram are Paddu/Guliyappa/Yeriyappa/ Gunta Ponganalu /appadadde.
Its been raining all week. Dully, gloomy weather with low lying clouds all day. Wanting to warm up indoors, I was thinking of ways to create a spicy yummy breakfast, to pep up our mood indoors.
What is Paniyaram?
Paniyaram is a staple breakfast in most South Indian homes where I grew up, it is made from left over idli batter which has a tinge of sourness to it making the Paniyarams nice & crispy on the outside while soft on the inside when cooked in the pan specially made for it.
How to make Carrot Paniyaram?
It was the weekend, time to get creative with cooking! What’s better than adding some fresh veggies to start breakfast with? Carrots in paniyaram sounded like a great idea & here I was mixing grated carrots into the pr-prepared Idli batter, to create yummy crispy paniyarams.
Nothing like a healthy balanced diet for your little ones, first thing in the morning. The crispy outside & the soft insides of the carrot paniyaram, make these a yummy breakfast item. If you are someone who enjoys South Indian food, you definitely have a favorite here!
