Baked Kuzhipaniyarams/Desi Muffins/Seasoned Pancake Puffs..

This is a very famous Chettiand cuisine and its a common practice in many south indian households to make these kuzhi paniyarams out of left over idly or dosa batter.
Its a yummy snack to eat especially during the monsoons and winter..
Its traditionally made using a aappa chatti or an aebleskiwer pan but baking it in a muffin tray
also does full justice to the dish and of course making it low calorie too!!
Here goes the recipe:


Leftover Idly or Dosa Batter

To season with:

Mustard-1 tsp

Ulutham paruppu/urad dhall-1 tsp

Kadala paruppu/channa dhall-1 tsp

Peringayam?hing - a pinch

Chopped green chillies-according to spice levels

Dry red chilly-1 no.

Curry leaves -1 sprig

Onions-2 small finely chopped

Oil-2 tbsp

Note:the dosa batter already has salt in it,so add extra salt only if needed..


1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees and meanwhile heat oil in a small pan and when hot add all the ingredients mentioned for seasoning..saute for 2 mins.

2.Remove it from the heat and add it to the dosa batter along with the chopped onions.

3.Now grease a muffin tray and fill it to its 3/4th level with the seasoned dosa batter.

4.Bake for about 20-30 mins till golden brown.

5.Remove the tray,let cool and enjoy it with coconut chutney or ketchup..

Note:as this is a baked snack,it may turn hard and rubbery if left for long due to the property of rice bake and eat it rite away!!
