Paniyaram is a South Indian breakfast. It is also known as Kuzhi Paniyaram. It is made using Idly/Dosa batter. I have added onion and grated carrot. You can also add finely chopped French beans, grated beetroot, finely chopped bell peppers. This can also be served as a snack. You can add this recipe to your Lunchbox list. Serve Paniyaram with Onion chutney or Coconut chutney.
