Masala Kuzhi Paniyaram

 Here is another kuzhi paniyaram variety which is perfect for breakfast and pairs up well as a lunch box recipe for the kiddo. If you have idli batter at home then this is one of the dishes with minor additions to the base batter.

Black gram dhal                    1 cup
Fenugreek seeds                   2tsp
Onion                                   2(cut into tiny pieces)
Green chillies                         3-4(finely cut)
Coriander                              1tbsp(finely cut)
Curry leaves                          2tsp (finely cut)
Salt                                        to taste
Oil                                         for shallow frying

Soak rice and fenugreek  for 3-4 hours
Soak urad dal seperately for 3 hrs
Grind each one separately into a soft batter, mix together evenly, mix in the salt and allow it to ferment for 10-12 hours or overnight
Heat oil in a pan
Mix the finely cut onions, green chillies, coriander and curry leaves to the batter. Mix in the asafoetida too
Heat the  2tsp Kuzhipaniyaram pan, pour oil into each depression 
When the oil heats up sufficiently, pour spoonful of the prepared batter into each kuzhi, close it with the lid  or a plate. Cook in low flame for 1 minute
Now flip each paniyaram on the other side and let it cook till it gets a golden brown colour
