Ragi Paniyaram

I have been experimenting with Ragi lately and this is just an invention out of it :)

  • Ragi Flour         - 1 cup
  • Green Chillies    - 4
  • Chopped Ginger- 1 tsp
  • Onions               - 1/2 cup
  • Curry Leaves     - few strands
  • Cut coconut       - 2 tsp
  • Cumin seeds      - 1/2 tsp

  • Mix all the ingredients together and make the batter like Dosa batter.
  • Add enough salt according to your taste,
  • Pour oil in the paniyaram plate and pour into each hole.
  • Flip when cooked in one side.
  • Take out when both sides are crisp.

Serve hot with coconut chutney!


  1. Paniyaram looks fabulous dear. Thanks for visiting.

  2. Errr...What is Paniyaram Plate? Can I make this on the normal Dosa Tava?

  3. Hiyaa,
    Paniyaram plate has small round holes in it so that you get the shape of a ball. If you use normal Dosa Tava you will get it like a dosa. You might want to add small quantity of rice flour to it when you make it like Dosa !

  4. Need to try this out. Given the benefits of Ragi finding a good way to use this miracle grain is very essential. This sounds interesting..

    I did not know what paniyaram but could guess it was gunthapongalu/gunthaponganalu as it is said in Kannada/Telegu respectively. Traditionally made of dosa batter with minor changes, it is one of my favorites..


Hey there,
Thanks for dropping by :-) !!
