Pearl Millet,Sprouted Green Gram Kuzhi Paniyaram

One of my recent trial with pearl millet aka Kambu is this fantastic nutritious kuzhi paniyaram, to make this dish more interesting i opted for sprouted green grams. Both make this dish more healthy and obviously delicious. Anybody can have this dish with their favourite side dish depending upon their tastebuds. I prepared this batter to try idlis out of it, suddenly i changed my mind and went for making these tiny dumplings using appam pan. These paniyaram aka dumplings came out extremely prefect and makes an excellent breakfast or snacks.

Pearl millet, Sprouted Greengram Paniyaram

Adding millets and sprouts to a simple idly batter definitely increase the nutritious level. Its one of the best way to sneak both millets and sprouts this way, if you are planning to feed your kids with millets, you should give a try to this healthy dumplings. However this batter is versatile, you can make Idlies, dosas,uthappams etc, as you can with usual idli batter. This post goes to this week's blogging marathon as i picked Nasta time as this week's theme.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#48.
