Oats Kuzhi Paniyaram / Oats Ponganalu

Photobucket

The little soft balls called paniyaram / ponganalu are delicious small dumplings haling from south India. The typical traditional recipe would have rice and lentil combination in its batter, but we came up with a different combination having oats and three other lentils to make it delicious and healthy snack or breakfast :)

Oats paniyaram is extremely soft and goes great with mint chutney or tomato chutney :)

Method:

Soak the three dhalls together in water for 1 hour.

Now grind the dhall along with oats powder, ginger, green chillies, cooking soda and salt. Add little water while grinding and bring it to dosa batter consistency. Leave this batter alone for 1 hour

Chop onion finely.

Add the chopped onion, grated carrot and coriander leaves to it and mix well.

Heat the kuzhi paniyaram pan and pour little oil in all the holes. Now pour the batter into the holes and cook until roasted on all sides.

Serve the oats paniyaram hot with mint chutney or tomato chutney :)

Tips:

Allow the batter to sit for atleast half an hour for best results.

Add ghee while roasting for extra flavor :)
