BM #90 Week 4 Day 2 - 

Here is a delightful and healthy breakfast/snack which is addictive as well.

When I got a pack of buckwheat a few months back, I tried out various dishes with buckwheat and one of my personal favorites has been this paniyaram paired with moong dal.

Ingredients - 

Moong Dal 3/4 cup
Buckwheat 1/4 cup
Idli Rava 1/2 cup
Almonds 5-6
Green chilies 2-3
Ginger 1 inch
Cumin Seeds 1 tsp
Coriander Leaves handful
Coconut, Grated 2 Tbsp (I used Frozen)
Salt as needed
Oil for frying

Method Of Preparation -

Wash and soak moong dal and buckwheat groats overnight.

Grind the soaked moong dal and buckwheat groats into a fine batter adding ginger, green chilies and coriander leaves.

Soak idli rava in about 1 cup of water for about 15-20 minutes.

Squeeze excess water from idli rava and mix it into the moong dal batter.

Add crushed almonds, salt, cumin seeds and grated coconut to the batter.

Mix the batter well and adjust the salt if needed.

Heat the paniyaram pan with a few drops of oil in each slot.

Pour a tablespoon of batter in each slot, cover and let it cook for a few minutes.

After the undersides are cooked, flip them carefully allowing them to cook on the other side as well.

Remove and continue with the batter.

Serve them warm with a chutney of your choice.


Preparation Time 30 minutes
Serves 4-5
