Ragi Kuzhi Paniyaram with left over Dosa Batter | Kezhvaragu Paniyaram

Ragi Kuzhi Paniyaram, an another easy paniyaram recipe made from ragi flour and left over dosa batter. If you have followed my blog for a while,you would have known by this time, that we both loved ragi a lot and i already have quite a handful of ragi recipes in my blog,if interested do check out here.
Whenever i have small quantity of dosa batter and it doesn't enough for two, usually i soak few tbsp of rava, add into the dosa batter and do the basic tempering and make rava dosa out of it and it's my favorite recipe with the leftover dosa batter and it's one of the popular recipe in my blog too 😋
And this ragi kuzhi paniyaram also born on one such occasion. Few months ago, for dinner,i had very little dosa batter and also ran out of rava in my pantry, so as a trial added some ragi flour into it and did the basic tempering and made this paniyaram. To my surprise it turned out so delicious. From that day onwards, this paniyaram was added to our regular menu, i make them often for breakfast or dinner.

  • Dosa batter already have salt in it, so while adding salt be careful, it may not be needed much.
