Oats Kuzhi Paniyaram

Kuzhi paniyaram is usually prepared with fermented idli batter but I tried this with oats as a healthy option. Oats reduces the risk of heart diseases and it is also rich in fibre.This is a healthy and nutritious dish for kids.

Ingredients - Serves 4
  • Oats flour - 1 cup (powder the rolled oats in a mixie or spice grinder)
  • Roasted Sooji / samolina - 1/2 cup
  • Finely chopped Onion - 1/2 cup
  • Green chilli deseeded - 1 tsp
  • Grated fresh Ginger - 1 tsp
  • Finely chopped Coriander leaves - 2 tbsp
  • Finely chopped Curry leaves - 1 tbsp
  • Salt - 1/4 tsp
  • Oil - 2 tbsp
  • Heat the pan with 1 tbsp of oil - add finely chopped onions, chillies, ginger and curry leaves with little salt - saute for few minutes
  • To the sauted onions mix the oats flour and rawa along with finely chopped coriander leaves
  • Mix well by adding water and bring it to idli batter consistency, add salt 

  • Heat the kuzhi paniyaram pan in medium heat
  • Add few drops of oil in each kuzhi / hole
  • Pour laddleful batter in each kuzhi and allow it to cook for few minutes

  • Flip it to the otherside using a spoon or paniyaram stick
  • Cook for another 2 minutes until it is nice brown in colour
  • Cook the paniyaram in medium heat or else it will end up dark brown on the outside and half cooked batter on the inside
  • Oats will take a little extra time to cook evenly
  • Serve hot with any chutney or sambar
