Multi Adai Paniyaram

Paniyaram is one of very popular breakfast or appetizer dish in Southern part of India. It is prepared from batter which is pretty similar to Dosa/Idli batter. I have already shared the regular Paniyaram recipe earlier, this recipe a little variation to the original recipe. The major ingredient for this recipe is mix of various kind of daal (pulses), beans, brown rice and rava. I have also added grated beetroot to a refreshing color as well as nice taste. The batter needs at least 6 to 7 hours of fermentation. The paniyram tastes great with samber, coconut or tomtato chutney. You would need paniyarm pan to prepare this recipe which is generally available in Indian grocery stores. These cute little balls works great as appetizer for your guests as well as for kid’s lunch boxesMulti Daal & Beans_1

After 6-7 hrs, add 1/4 tsp baking soda in batter and mix very lightly. ( Adding baking soda is optional, it's help to make paniyaram more soft & fluffy.)
