Paniyaram recipes

I remember how we used to enjoy hot paniyaram in Hot chips neelangarai.. Used hear the sizzling sound of cooking paniyaram and loved those hot paniyarams a  lot .. Still remember the old days how me and TH used to hangout in the weekends roaming around the ECR road , just feeling nostalgic when I speak about paniyarams as most of the time we used have them with some interesting talking done in between ;) .. By the way coming to paniyaram I am a great lover of paniyarams  i make them often with idli batter but thought of giving it a healthy twist and used quinoa in the recipe . We love having them in the evening with chutney and sambhar hope you will also like them..
