Real Taste of Paniyaram


I heard lot about this paniyaram and tasted that in different taste and flavour. But this time, I visited to my friend house at Karaikudi, the authentic Kara paniyaram served with the breakfast; the taste was totally different from the earlier one.

At once the taste spurs me to collect the recipe from my friend’s maam and now blogged it for my readers use.

Kara Paniyaram


Raw Rice – 250g
Urad Dal – 175g
Oil – For Frying
Dry Redchillies- 5nos
Curry leaves- 1 sprig
Asafoetida- a pinch
Salt- as needed
Ginger- 1tsp
Mustard Seeds- a little
Soda Bi Carbonate – a little
Small Onions – 3 cloves
Turmeric Powder- a pinch


1.Soak the raw rice and the urad dal for an hour. Grind the both like a pouring consistency.
2.Prepare the fundamental masala for the Kara paniyaram with oil, dry redchillies, ginger, Mustard seeds, small onions, curry leaves, Turmeric powder, and asafoetida. Make it as a fine paste.
3.Mix the masala and the batter well. Add the salt and soda bi Carbonate into it.
4.Heat the oil in a specially made paniyaram vessel, drop the batter in the hot oil.
5.Turn the side of the paniyaram after 2 minutes. Cook it with care, if the heat is too, the inner of the paniyaram will not cook properly.

Yes its taste awesome for the spicy lovers, prefect accompaniment for the typical south Indian breakfast and evening snack. Dish it out huahahahah !!!!!!!!

Deep Fried ......

Munthiri Kothu

Munthiri kothu is golden, yellow in colour, it’s an authentic sweet and favourite evening snack in the Tirunelveli and the surrounding areas. It’s a easy sweet preparation, I am sure the fine prepared munthiri kothu can keep it for a month, the taste will initiate you for the second time preparation.

Munthiri Kothu means “bunch of balls”. You can see that from this picture it is a bind with each one.

Cardamom – as required
Cloves – two
Ginger Powder – a pinch
Maida – 200 gram

1.Fry the green gram and rice with cardamom and cloves in medium fire, coarsely grind the gram mixture.
2.Make thick Jaggery syrup; add the grinded powder and ginger powder, grated Coconut, little ghee, mix all these ingredients well.
3.While it is in little heat, make even size balls. Prepare the batter with maida and lemon yellow colour; dip the balls in this batter.
4.Deep fry it in hot oil.
5.It is a wonderful evening snack; take along with tea or coffee.
