Instant Oats Paniyaram | Indian Oats Recipes

Print Friendly and PDF
'Paniyaram' which is also called as 'Paddu' or 'Gunta Ponganalu' is a very common breakfast variety at my place. I usually make it at least once when I prepare dosa batter. When the dosa batter turns sour, it is ideal to use it to make paniyaram.Today, I am posting a variation of Paniyaram which is an instant variety using Oats which makes it healthy too.Oats can be used in most south Indian varieties. I have already posted recipes such as Instant Oats Idli,Instant Oats Uthappam and Instant Oats Dosa.Try this healthy and instant Oats Paniyaram recipe. It is very delicious. Would highly recommend it.
Check out other versions of paniyaram here.

Instant Oats Paniyaram | Oats Paddu Recipe:
(Serves 3-4)

Ingredients:
1 cup Quick cooking Oats(Quaker/Saffola)
1 cup Sooji/Rava
1 cup sour Curd
3 tbsp Chana dal
1 big Onion,finely chopped
3 tbsp chopped Coriander
2-3 tbsp chopped Curry leaves
1 tsp Cumin seeds
1 tsp Eno/Fruit salt
1/4 tsp Cooking Soda
Salt to taste

Method:
  • Soak chana dal in water for 1-2 hrs. Drain them.
  • Dry roast oats and sooji separately until they start changing their color.Do not roast much.Cool them and grind them together in a mixer to a coarse powder.
  • Beat curd well and add it to a big bowl add ground oats and sooji and mix well.Add enough water to it to get the consistency of dosa batter.
  • Add salt and cooking soda to the mixed batter and leave it aside for 1 hr.You should leave it at least for 20 mins aside.
  • Add finely chopped onions, coriander, curry leaves along with green chilli paste,cumin seeds, soaked chana dal and mix well.

  • Check the consistency of batter,it might become thick as the sooji absorbs water when it is soaked.Add extra required water to it to get the dosa batter consistency.
  • Just before making paniyaram add eno to the batter and mix well.
  • Heat the paniyaram/gunta panganalu pan/Aebliskever pan and add 1/2 tsp of oil in each impression.When it is piping hot keep the flame on LOW and pour the batter using a table spoon until it covers 3/4 th and pour some more oil over it and cover it with a lid.Let it roast on low-medium flame until golden brown in color.
  • When you see the edges turning golden in color use a sharp knife and run it around the edges of each paniyaram and turn them to the other side and roast until golden brown on both the sides.

Notes:
  1. You can add grated carrots or blanched corn to the batter and make paniyaram.
  2. Make sure that you use sour curd to make this.
  3. You can refrigerate the batter and use it on next day as well.Add eno to the batter before using it.
  4. If you do not have eno you can use only cooking soda in the recipe.

Paddus are one of my favourite breakfast dishes. I love those chopped onions, coconut, soaked canna dal, etc. which go in. Your oats version looks delicious! I have some sour peanut curds in my fridge. Will try these soon. :)

I had an Indian friend before 2 years back and she always tells me about paniyaram and she tells me it’s very tasty. But I didn’t want to get the recipe from her. But after seeing your post, I thought of preparing it tomorrow itself.

I made these last night in an Aebliskever pan and they came out perfect...just like the photos. I used 2% greek yogurt for the sour curd and wasn't sure if that would work, but it did nicely. Thanks for the recipe!

Onehonestwriter said...

I have prepared the batter only to realise it requires a different pan :( all this while I was thinking that all it needs is an idly stand. Can I still go ahead and may be later pan fry them? Not sure and hoping u reply before my one hour gets over.

prathibha Garre said...
