If you have very tiny quantity of varieties of millets left aside in your pantry and dont know how to finish them, just look at this beauties, am sure they will definitely makes an excellent evening snacks. These paniyarams are more filling,nutritious, satisfying and healthy as well. After making couple of dishes with millets like barnyard millet, kodomillet, foxtail millet,little millet, finger millets,there were some leftovers sitting in my pantry since a while, those millets pulled me to try this interesting combination and trust me you will leave aside some millets just to make this kuzhi paniyarams. Kids love this paniyaram, this finger food can be easily served with anything as side dish, my lil one love his paniyaram without any side dish if they are tempered and spiced with green chillies. Sometimes they love with chutney, am sure kids will definitely finish their plate of paniyaram without any fuss.Sending to Kids's Delight - Healthy Snack Box hosted by Harini,event by Srivalli, Pari's Only - Gluten Free Cooking.

This paniyaram goes for few varieties of millets, but if you dont have varieties of millets, just make simply with a millet. Since i have small quantity of few millets, i combined everything to make this healthy addictive paniyarams.
