An easy and quick recipe for making masala muttai paniyarams. All you need is some idli dosai batter and eggs. An egg is mixed into the batter to make the batter fluffy and a boiled egg is chopped and added to the batter for texture and taste. Onions, tomatoes and spices are mixed into the batter and made into paniyarams. These little balls are very tasty and can be served just like that. If feeling fancy, a kara chutney will go well. This is a perfect after-school snack too.
Here is the video of how to make Masala Muttai Paniyaram Recipe | Egg Paniyaram With Veggies
2 cups idli dosai batter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1 tomato de-seeded, finely chopped
1/4 inch ginger, finely chopped
1 sprig curry leaves, finely chopped
2 green chillies, finely chopped
3 sprigs coriander leaves, finely chopped
1 boiled egg, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon black pepper powder
Peanut oil for making paniyaram
Take about 2 cups of idli dosai batter in a bowl and break an egg into it. Add some salt and whisk well to combine. The egg mixed into the batter will make it very fluffy and adds a rich taste to the paniyaram. Once the batter is uniformly mixed, add some finely chopped onions. Add some finely chopped tomatoes. I have used deseeded tomatoes today. Make sure to chop fine. Add little ginger, curry leaves and green chillies. I like to make these paniyarams spicy. Add freshly chopped coriander leaves and an egg that has been boiled and chopped fine. Finally, add some black pepper powder. Mix everything well to combine. Make sure to chop all the vegetables and herbs as fine as possible so they are evenly distributed in the batter. Once mixed, the batter is ready. The batter doesn’t store well. It needs to be used right away.
Heat a paniyarakkal and add oil to the moulds. I have used peanut oil for making the paniyarams today. Indian-style sesame oil or vegetable oil can also be used for making paniyarams. Ladle a little batter and add to the pan. Make sure not to add too much batter as the middle of the paniyarams will not cook if you add too much batter. These paniyarams need to be cooked on a low medium flame. Cook for a minute on each side so the paniyarams cook evenly and are cooked thoroughly. After a minute flip the paniyarams and cook on the other side. If you want a very rich paniyaram, you can sprinkle little ghee at this stage. Cook on the other side till golden. Make sure to cook on both sides till the paniyarams look golden. Once the paniyarams are roasted and golden, remove them from the pan. These paniyarams can be eaten on their own or served with a spicy kaara chutney.
These make for a perfect after-school snack. Enjoy!
