20 GREEN MOONG KUZHI PANIYARAM

Green Moong Puffed Balls/ Pacha Payiru Kuzhi Paniyaram - Gunta Punugulu - Paddu


Few days back I started with posting some vadagam and powders recipes. Today had scheduled to post one powder/podi recipe and all of a sudden changed my mind and am posting this delicious and healthy breakfast or snack item can be had even for dinner. Making the batter and some preparations for it is very simple and main thing it can be made instant other than time needed for soaking. The method for making is same as making batter for pesarattu( Green Moong dosa). Only difference is this is poured in paniyaram pans and cooked.

Green Whole Moong - 1 cup
Raw rice - 2 - 3 tbsp
Green Chillie - 2 or 3(or as spice needed)
Ginger - 1/2 - 3/4 inch piece
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Salt as needed
Onion - 1 medium( 1/2 chopped roughly and half chopped fine)

For tempering:-
Oil - 1 - 2 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Urad dhal - 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida - 2 or 3 sprnkles
Curry leaves - few
And the half chopped fine onions


wash and soak moong and rice together for 4 - 5 hours. Next grind to a smooth paste with cumin seeds, green chillies, ginger , half of the roughly chopped onions and salt. See that it is ground fine and batter should be of pouring consistency and not running.

Heat oil for tempering in a small pan and add mustard seeds, urad dhal, curry leaves, asafoetida. Wait till it pops and add finely chopped onions( Adding onions here is optional). Fry till nice brown and pour this on the batter. Mix well and keep it ready.


Heat the paniyaram pan and pour few drops of oil in each hole. Next pour some batter in each hole and wait for it to cook. Use a wooden spoon or a stick( I used a bamboo stick that we use for making kababs). Slowly turn side and cook till done. Remove and serve with your favourite chutney( Preferably coconut` or kara chutney or tomato chutney).
