Paniyaram/Kuzhipaniyaram

I would like to thank all our blogger friends for the awards and continued support.  We will have more details about the award in our next post.
paniyaram

The weather is already getting so chilly here. When you see snow in October you couldn't think of anything other than a hot snack with a cup of tea to console yourself. I had a wonderful neighbor when we were staying in Hyderabad (can't help telling you all the Hyderabad stories, after all, my culinary experiments started there :D) ,'S' aunty who was from Tamilnadu. She used to share all her special foods and also the recipes with me. Paniyaram is one among the many dishes I learned from her. It is a very popular snack in Tamilnadu and they use our "unniyappachatti"(paniyarachatti) for making this. I do not have one, so mine doesn't have that beautiful shape. But the taste was excellent :-)
