  • Salt – a pinch
  • Jaggery syrup – as per the sweetness required
  • Cooking soda – a pinch

  • Take wheat flour, rice flour, salt, cooking soda and cardamom powder in a bowl and stir them, to get them well mixed.
  • Now pour in the jaggery syrup and then little water for the required consistency (Dosa batter). Ensure no lumps should be formed.
  • Let it rest for 5 mins.
  • Now heat ghee or oil in the panniyaram kadai. Scoop in the batter and drizzle with oil/ghee.
  • Swap the side after 5 mins. In another 5 mins, check whether the panniyaram is cooked and remove from the kadai.

Serve hot with tea or coffee. Goes out well for breakfast or as tea time snack.

Note: Check out whether the buns are cooked, since it’s wheat bun it would take time to get cooked but the colour change in 3-4 minutes. It’s better to cook in medium flame, else the buns would be burnt before it’s done.
