Oatilicious Marrow Paniyaram ~ Oats and Marrow spicy snack

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

Paniyaram are becoming a very close buddy in my family. Now and then request comes from family members :-) can we have paniyaram for lunch today ? and I can't seem to say NO either because the fact that I like them and so very keen to try few varieties. I have tried masala paniyaram then I tried vegetable paniyaram and they are always a HIT ..Oatilicious Marrow paniyaram born out of my other recipe which is Oats and Mix daal Chilla. I made few changes in that recipe and made Paniyaram instead of Chilla ( pancake ). Healthy and very tasty, one or two just not enough, you have to have a full bowl :-)

My next door neighbour gave me this huge marrow ( white pumpkin ) the other day, she told me she has 4-5 of them in her fridge too ! ( she grows so many vegetables ) I kept thinking how many dishes will I  make from this huge marrow. I used in so many dishes, still nearly 1kg was left. Then I thought of making oats and mixed daal paniyaram and added grated marrow in the batter. Once again very successful recipe and round of applause for me too :-)

You will need:-
  • 1/3 cup or 60 g channa daal
    1/4 cup or 40 g cup toor daal
    1/4 cup or 40 g washed moong daal ( yellow )
  • 1/4 cup or 40 g urad daal ( white )
    150 g porridge oats
    1 tsp ginger and green chilli crushed
  • 1 cup grated marrow
  • 1 medium onion finely chopped
    salt to taste
    1/4 tsp black pepper powder
    4-5 whole red chillies
    1/2 tsp turmeric powder
    1/4 tsp garam masala
    1 tsp cumin seeds and Fennel seeds ( lightly crushed )
    Few torn curry leaves
    Oil for greasing the pan

Wash and soak daals together for 3-4 hours. Grind coarsley with oats, red chillies and little water.
Add ginger and green chillies , all the powder masala. salt , onion , grated marrow, curry leaves and cumin and fennel seeds.
Mix well and check the seasoning.
Heat the paniyaram pan and add few drops of any oil and pour a small amount of batter into each hole.
When they starts to cook one side, turn them very carefully and cook other side till they are crispy and light brown on both sides.
Remove from the pan and serve hot with tomato chutney.
