ONION PANIYARAM (Gunta Ponganalu)
Left over Idly batter at home?!No worries!try onion Paniyarams for a change..and you will definitely get hooked!!
Idly batter - about 3 cups
Onions - 2 -finely chopped
Green Chilles - 2 to 3 finely chopped
Ginger (grated) - about ½ inch
Asafoetida(Hing) - a pinch
Black pepper - ½ tsp
Red chili powder(optional)
Curry leaves - few sprigs
Grated coconut - 2 Tbsp
salt if required
HOW TO MAKE
Take a mixing bowl and add all the ingredients with the Idly batter.
Add little salt if necessary and mix well.
Heat the paniyaram tava ready.(it should be heated up before)
Grease the tava with a few drops of oil.
Once it is hot,take a table spoon of the batter and fill about ¾ of the paniyaram mould.
Drizzle little oil and let it cook for 2-3 minutes on a low or medium flame.(Close it with a lid for faster cooking)
After few minutes turn each paniyaram with the help of a spoon.
Now allow the other side to get cooked .(make sure you cook in medium flame,otherwise the insides of the paniyaram will not be cooked well)
Remove the cooked paniyarams when they turn golden brown and transfer them in to a bowl.This way paniyarams can be made in several batches.
Serve with chutney pudi or coconut chutney while it is still hot!Enjoy!
