|Raw Rice:||1 cup|
|Toor dhal (optional):||1 tsp|
|Grated jaggery:||1 cup|
|Oil/Ghee :||to fry|
|Grated coconut (optional) :||2 tablespoon|
Soak rice and dhal together for atleast 1 hour
Drain the water and grind the rice in mixie/blender without adding water.
Once jaggery is added, the batter will become more watery
Once it becomes coarse, add the jaggery and grind it until it becomes smooth.
Add the mashed banana and cardomom seeds and grind until everything mixes well.
Add the grated coconut as well
Pour about 1 tsp of oil in each kuzhi in the paniyaram pan
Pour 1 tsp of batter in each of them.Make sure you fill only 3/4 of the kuzhi with batter.
Flip the sides and fry until golden brown
Do not add water while grinding rice.
The batter consistency should be like dosa batter. If it is very watery can add rice flour
Always fry in the medium flame
Use ghee for frying for enhanced taste and flavor
If prepared without adding coconut, this will stay good for atleast 3 days (have not tested beyond that :-)
