  • saute pan
  • spatula
  • Appam pan


  • 1 ½ cup Wheat flour
  • ½ cup Rava / semolina
  • ¼ cup Rice flour
  • 1 cup Yogurt Preferably sour
  • ¾ teaspoon Baking soda
  • 1 small Onion Finely chopped
  • 4 Green chilies Finely chopped
  • ½ inch piece Ginger Grated
  • 1 teaspoon Mustard seeds
  • 2 teaspoon Ullutham paruppu / urad dal
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin seeds
  • a pinch Asafetida
  • few Curry leaves
  • few Cilantro
  • to taste Salt
  • 1 tablespoon Oil Per more to make the kuzhipaniyaram


  • In a bowl add all the flours along with salt and mix well.
  • Add the yogurt and just enough water to make a thick batter. The batter should be like idli batter. Make sure that you mix them up well so that there are no lumps. The wheat flour tends to lump up and hence it is important to use your hands to break the lumps.
  • In a pan, heat 1 tablespoon of oil and add the mustard seeds and the cumin seeds. Let the seeds splutter and then add the urad dal. Also, add the asafetida and curry leaves along with the onions and sauté the onions until they turn translucent. Add salt just enough for the onion mixture as we have already added salt to the batter.
  • Turn off the flame and add the ginger and the cilantro. Mix once and add it to the batter. Mix well.
  • Add the baking soda to the batter at the end and mix up well to combine.
  • Heat the appam pan and add about ½ teaspoon oil in each of the holes. Add the batter and cover the pan to help cook the paniyaram. Flip over to the other side and let it cook on the other side as well.
  • Remove and serve the Wheat Flour Kara Kuzhi Paniyaram with sauce or chutney.
