Vellai Paniyaram

Vellai Paniyaram or Vellai Appam is a very famous chettinadu dish. And a very favorite evening snack. It is basically made from Rice flour. And tastes great. Goes great with Tomato Chutney or Varamillagai Chatni i.e. A Red Hot chutney made from Dry Red Chillies.


Raw Rice - 1 Cup (Flatten it with palm, i.e it should not be more than that cup)
Urad Dal - Heap the cup of Rice with Urad dal on top
Sugar - 1 tsp
Milk - 1 to 1 1/2 tb.sp
Oil - For Deep frying


Clean the rice and dal mixture in water. Soak it for about 2 to 3 hours. Then grind it in a mixer or grinder till you get a very very smooth paste. Add water little by little whenever needed. It should not become very watery. Transfer the grinded flour to a vessel. Add salt and sugar, beat nicely with a ladle. Add milk if needed.  The flour should not be too thick and it should also not be very watery.

Heat oil in a shallow kadai. When the oil is hot enough pour the flour into the oil with the help of a ladle. After a few seconds it should rise up automatically. Turn it to the other side and let it cook for about a minute. Remove it onto a tissue paper. Prepare this one by one. And serve it hot with chutney.
