sweet paniyaram: sweet paniyaram recipe with leftover idli batter

here is a sweet paniyaram recipe. all you need to make these sweet dumplings are idli batter, coconut and powdered jaggery.

paniyarams are a nice snack or a tiffin variety that you can make with leftover idli batter. usually i make plain or masala paniyaram and these sweet paniyarams with leftover idli batter.

due to the jaggery, these sweet paniyarams  have a porous and soft texture and taste very good. these also make a good tiffin box sweet snack.

to make these you need the paniyaram chatti – Æbleskiver pan. you can also shallow fry these dumplings if you don’t have this special cookware. i have never baked them, so i don’t know how they will turn out if you bake them.

step by step recipe to make sweet paniyarams from leftover idli batter:

1: add all the ingredients in the idli batter.

2: mix well. use thick idli batter as due to dissolution of the jaggery, the batter’s consistency becomes liquid. so to avoid the batter becoming too much thin, better to use a thick idli batter.

3: heat the paniyaram chatti and add a few drops of oil in the moulds. pour the batter from a spoon till 3/4th of the mould. sprinkle some more oil from above if required.

4: due to jaggery the mixture browns quickly, so keep an eye. turn the dumplings with a skewer or spoon so as the other side gets cooked.

6: when they are browned well from all sides, remove and serve sweet paniyaram hot or warm with milk, tea or coffee. these are so delicious that they can be had plain as well.

The picture reminds me of my school days when one of my school mate used to bring paniyaram occasionally and we all used to hog on it.

I’m going to try this delicious recipe sometime soon; not to mention it’s incredibly easy to do.

Thanks for running this awesome website. Keep the great work up.
