Oats Kuzhi Paniyaram / Oats Kara Paniyaram / Oats & Rice Flour Balls / Oats Ponganalu - Instant Version

I love making kuli paniyaram, specially because of their cute shapes. These bite size morsels are such a indulgence for breakfast. There is nothing more than making this during morning and having with coconut chutney.

This is the new paniyaram maker which i bought online for around 500 Rs. It is such a dream one, it is nonstick and i love it, because when i experiment with so many version of this paniyaram i dont have to worry about things getting stuck to the pan.

These paniyaram are made with oats and this is a instant version. It can be made any time as you wish. You can add whatever veggies you wish, i added some grated carrot which i love in this. This turned out to be so soft and fluffy and i loved it. Try it and you will know why i loved it...

Nice!!! I have always enjoyed cooking from childhood, and your blog and couple more - Solai's Kitchen - I bet you know that too, and vah-reh-vah . com, is encouraging me to write my own blog / website with recipes. Last evening I tried the Salna and wrote to you.

On this kuzhipaniyaram, much liked aspect is the "eno salt"! Nice unique idea and usage, instead of some baking soda or yeast etc. Kudos & Cheers!!
