Masala Paniyaram is a simple snack made from left over idli/dosa batter. When the batter becomes sour or old I make this. It is a simple recipe which can be made without any prior preparation. Can be had for breakfast/dinner too. Perfect for kids as it has a good dose of vegetables and looks colourful/attractive. I have already shared the traditional recipe of kuzhi paniyaram before, this is a quick & instant version. If u are looking for sweet verions of paniyaram check this or this!

  1. U can add finely chopped green chillies. I did not add as Chotu does not like it.
  2. U can add any veggies of your choice. Make sure it is finely chopped.
  3. Cook the Masala Paniyaram in medium flame for even cooking. Else it will be brown outside and un-cooked inside.
  4. Coconut is purely optional. U can skip it.
