Kuzhi paniyaram (gunthatulu)

 One of my favourite breakfast item. It turns out to come out very well when used a non-stick paniyara maker. Some how when mom used to make this with the stone paniyara khal I would not prefer to have this much until she bought a nonstick one.I tried to make this in the owen once using small cups as I did not have the mould. It turned out to be a disaster and I had to put it straight to the bin.
Also known as Kuzhi Paniyaram, Kuli Paniyaram, Gunthatulu.

Ingredients :


  • Rice - 2 cup (idli rice)
  • Urad daal - 1 cup
  • Salt
Soak Rice and Urad dhal for abt 5 hours and grind it well, adding enough water. Add salt and keep it over night. You can use the left over idli batter make this.


  • Onions - 4 Nos
  • Green Chillies - 4 Nos.
  • Curry Leaves - 5 stings
  • Mustard seeds - 1 tea spn
  • Cumin Seeds - 1 tea spn
  • Urad dhal - 1 tbl spn
  • Baking powder : 2 pinches
  • Oil
Method of preparation : 
  • Take 3 tbl spoons of oil in a pan, heat it and add mustard seeds, cumin once they splutter add urad dhal and then curry leaves, green chillies, onions all finely chopped. 
  • Fry it till it turns golden brown. 
  • Add this into the batter along with baking powder and mix it well. Add salt if required.
  • Heat the mould, put one drop of oil in each of the impression and then once its hot pour the batter. 
  • Add few drops of oil around the paniyaram, turn it with a sharp edged stick (chop stick) and fry on the other side. 
  • It would take 10 to 12 min to fry both the sides.

Serve hot with coconut or tomato chuttney. Well it would taste great even without any side dish.
