Kodo Millet and Quinoa Paniyaram (fried balls) a vegan, healthy and delicious south Indian dish which can be enjoyed at breakfast or as a snack.


Kodo Millet (Kodri) and Quinoa Paniyaram is a delicious and healthy breakfast or snack can be enjoyed with any type of chutney.

This savoury dish is made with healthy grains like Kodo Millet (aka kodri) and Quinoa batter with basic ingredients. The wonderful texture of this paniyaram is so amazing, crunchy exterior and spongy soft pillowy centre make this dish more appetizing.

My knowledge of South Indian food was limited, I only knew idli, dosa and vada sambhar. My imagination didn't run any further than this. Probably not my fault as if you asked a South Indian about Gujarati food, maybe they'd only be able to tell you dhokla and fafda.

Since then I have made Paniyaram many times by varying the recipe ingredients. But, with these two healthy ingredients, these remain my favourite. Without any guilt, I can enjoy with mild coconut and spicy tomato and onion chutney.

Generally, traditional Paniyaram or kuzi (masala) Paniyaram are made with plain Idli batter, which is seasoned with few spices and basic ingredients like onion, green chillies and curry leaves. Also, different kind of vegetables can be added to make this dish healthier and tasty.

In the past, I have prepared Kuzi (Masala) Paniyaram which is all-time favourite in the family, Vegetable Paniyaram and Oats and Marrow Paniyaram, but now that we are trying to include many healthy options in our diet, I used Kodo Millet and Quinoa in this recipe, both the ingredients are packed with so many nutrition, especially packed with protein.
