Ragi Kara Paniyaram Recipe / Fingermillet & Spinach Kuzhi Paniyaram Recipe



This is healthy paniyaram which can be made in minutes. Plus it is really healthy. I made this with ragi flour and wheat flour. First i thought of adding curd in this, then i left that plan and made it with normal water. For softness i added some baking soda. The paniyaram turned out soft and it had a little chewyness which ragi would normally have. For more health benefits i added some spinach too. 


I hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
