I like the paniyaram very much either it's sweet or savoury.In our home,my mom usually made sweet paniyaram.When i was in chennai,we usually went to ganga sweets at evenings.They serve all kind of chat items.There only i first tasted kara paniyaram along with sambhar and vengaya chutney.I liked it first time itself.Recently i was craving for kara paniyaram,so last week i prepared it long with vengaya chutney
