Karupatti Kuzhi Paniyaram | Sweet Paniyaram Using Dosa Batter

Karupatti Kuzhi Paniyaram, a delicious and quick to make sweet/snack with dosa batter. Traditionally,  separate batter is prepared to make the kuzhi paniyaram, but here in this recipe, we 're going to use the regular dosa batter. Still it tastes as awesome as the traditional one. 

More than kara kuzhi paniyaram, this sweet version of kuzhi paniyaram is my favorite. Amma makes this often for breakfast in addition to dosa and we grew up eating this alone for breakfast in the weekends, it was like our kind of donut breakfast. 

But now a days, i'm not making this often mainly because of the rare availability of karupatti in the places that i have been living for the past few years. Whenever i have seen them in grocery store, immediately i would grab them for making this karupatti paniyaram and karupatti coffee.

Sometime the flavor and taste of the karuppati that are available here would slightly differ from taste and flavor that i'm used to, so making this paniyaram is a very rare sight at my kitchen now a days.

A few months back, bought the karupatti from the local indian store and it's flavor and taste are so much like the one that i'm used to, so i have been using that in ration and try to keep it as long as i can :-), already made this paniyaram twice in the last one month.

 If you haven't tried this sweet version of paniyaram do give it a try, no need to make any special batter, dosa batter simply works fine, make sure that the batter is thick. Now let's check out the recipe.

  • Don't add more water for making karupatti syrup, it will make the batter dilute.
  • Instead of palm jaggery, regular jaggery can also be used
  • Cook it in low flame, otherwise it's easily get burnt in the bottom because of the sugar in it.
  • No need to check for any syrup consistency here, just let it melt is enough.
  • Crush the karuppati in hand motor and pestle and then add into sauce pan for easy melting.
  • Personally i like to use sesame oil for this paniyaram more than ghee. Use ghee if you prefer that flavor.
  • Instead of grated coconut, you can used coconut bits also if prefer some crunchiness in between.
  • Serve it hot or cold, it tastes good in either way. But i prefer to have it straight from the stove.
