Paasi Parupu Paniyaram

Paniyarams are quick food that are served hot. These are cute paniyarams which are very colorful and tasty. Adjust the green chili to taste. Make sure to chop the leaves fine. Addition of onion makes this one extra special. You can also avoid green chili and ginger and add pepper powder instead. I got this recipe from here and made very few changes. This batter is a boon to have on hand. Can be made the previous day and the paniyarams can be made in a jiffy for a breakfast, lunchbox or quick tiffin. You will need a kuzhi paniyaram pan to do this. I have used the non stick pan, so I needed just a few drops of oil per paniyaram. Traditional iron skillet may consume more oil.

Paasi Parupu / Yellow Moong Dal - 1 cup
Rice Flour - 2 table spoons
Onion - 2

Oil - 1/2 tea spoon per paniyaram
Curry Leaves - 10 (chopped)
Coriander Leaves - 1/4 cup (chopped)
Ginger - 1 tea spoon (grated)
Green Chili - 2 (minced)
Asafetida - 1/4 tea spoon
Salt - 1 tea spoon

Soak the paasi parupu for 2 hours and grind it to a fine batter
Add rice flour, salt, asafetida and mix all the dry ingredients well
Add finely chopped onions, coriander leaves, curry leaves, ginger, green chili
Add water and make to a dosa consistency batter
Heat a paniyaram pan and add few drops of oil in the moulds
Drop the batter into the moulds and cook on medium flame covered
When the bottom side is done, flip it inside the mould such that the top side get a chance to cook
Remove from heat when a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Serve it as is, or with chutney or ketchup
