Rava Kara Kuzhi Paniyaram Recipe / Sooji Paniyaram Recipe

Rava Kara Paniyaram is one recipe which i made recently and loved it instantly. It is a simple recipe and taste really delicious. The paniyaram turns out so soft and fluffy. Loved the texture as well..

I use my non stick kuzhi paniyaram pan, it is my favourite. Because you can experiment with any of your own kuzhi paniyaram in this and it will make sure it comes off easily without sticking..This is my recent experiment and i loved it to the core..

This recipe calls for few ingredients. I just added onions, you can add carrots, beans, cabbage and capsicum. This way it turns even more healthy..

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