  1. Kaara Kuzhi Paniyaaram
  2. Sweet Kuzhi Paniyaaram

This is yet another paniyaaram dish but with a twist to the traditional one. The batter is completely different. No Rice and No Urad dhal at all. I am using red poha/flattened rice, oats, quinoa, toor dhal, moong dhal and flax seeds.


I usually try adai with this mix but this time thought why not try paniyaaram?? I also added the veggies that I had in stock and eureka!!! Here is the multigrain paniyaaram with veggies. You can add any veggies that you have in hand. Its a filling and healthy meal/snack loaded with veggies and grains. You can serve this with the tomato onion chutney or with any spicy chutney that you like.

  2. Moong dhal – 1/4 cup
  3. Quinoa – 1/4 cup
  4. Red poha/flattened rice – 1/4 cup
  5. Flax seeds – 1/4 cup
  6. Regular Oats – 1/4 cup
  7. Water for soaking
  8. Salt – 1 tsp


  • Soak all the grains and dhals in water for at least 4-5 hrs. (I let it soak for overnight, oats gets mushy but its ok)
  • Wet grind them like idly dosa batter and add salt and mix well.
  • Let it sit for 4 to 5 hrs.

For the Veggie Masala:


  • Grated Carrot – 1/4 cup
  • Grated Cauliflower – 1/4 cup
  • Finely chopped half of medium sized onion.
  • Chopped cilantro – 2 tbsps
  • Red chilly – 1
  • Green chilly – 1
  • Curry leaves – 1/2 strand
  • Oil – 2 tsps + making paniyaaram
  • Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
  • Urad dhal – 1 tsp
  • Channa dhal – 1 tsp
  • Salt – 1/2 tsp


  • Heat the kadai and add 2 tsps of oil.
  • Once the oil is hot add the mustard seeds, urad dhal and channa dhal.
  • As they start to splutter add the curry leaves, the red chilly and the green chilly.
  • Let it cook for a minute and then add the finely chopped onion.
  • Cook till the onion turns translucent.
  • Now add the grated carrot and cauliflower and cook for couple of minutes along with salt..
  • Add the cilantro and mix well.


Thats it the masala for paniyaaram is ready. Now mix this with the batter.

Making the Paniyaarams:

  • Heat the paniyaaram pan.
  • Add little oil in each of the kuzhi’s or the holes.
  • Fill 3/4th of the kuzhi’s with the batter. You need that space because the paniyaaram will rise.
  • Allow it to cook for 1.5 to 2 minutes. (As this is multigrain, it does take some time)


  • Using the paniyaaram stick, flip the paniyaarams and let it cook for 1 mt.

Thats it. Yummy Multigrain paniyaaram is ready.
