These muttai kuzhi paniyarams are a breeze to make during the hectic mornings when we find ourselves running around like a headless chicken, multitasking and managing to do a million things in a short span of time.
Mine love them very much. Since my younger one’s school prohibits from sending over eggs to school, I make this muttai paniyaram and send it to school. It’s one of the easy to way to include eggs in a kid’s diet especially if they happen to hate eggs.
This also happen to be one of the recipe which got published in “The Complete Wellbeing” Magazine few months ago in which I shared few recipes featuring eggs.
I have given a very basic muttai paniyaram here, but you can also make a tempering like I have done in my Chettinad Kara Kuzhi Paniyaram and add it to the batter and continue to make this Muttai Paniyaram. It will also be equally good.
You can also use any leftover vegetable curry and use it to make a stuffed paniyaram like I have done in my Mushroom stuffed kuzhi paniyarams. Though it will take a little long time, it will be very healthy for the kids. Even kids who hate veggies will not say no to these stuffed paniyarams.
Paniyarams made using slightly sour idli batter will actually taste good than the fresh batter. The same applies to making Oothappam too. But then its my personal opinion and don’t let that stop you from making these muttai paniyarams.
