My kids favorite breakfast.they love paniyaram more to :) them its like small balls they both will be more excited.They both will throw at each others face n they laugh loudly n enjoy the play more than with the toys.
Some times i too enjoy the scene without disturbing them...they both shout at laughter n by chance they will have one or two bites...that makes me even more happy :)This time to impress (to make them eat some) them i made paniyaram with some mixed  effort was great success..yep they both liked it very much and sanjay, he asked the same for lunch also.So you also try to sneak veggies in similar way to full your kid's tummy..Heres the recipe

Vegetable Oothappam

    My H doesn't like i made this vegetable oothappam for him.I simply served with coconut chutney.(without tempering...i like this type of chutney for nice smell)
  • Transfer the fried vegetables to a bowl and keep aside.
  • Heat a tawa/griddle ,when its hot pour 2 ladle full of batter and spread in circular motion..make it thick like pan cake.
  • Now sprinkle the fried vegetable all over the dosa and drizzle some oil in and around the dosa.
  • Cook in medium heat and after 2 minutes flip the dosa carefully and cook for another minute and remove from the tawa.
  • Enjoy the oothappam with chutney and sambar.

You can use any number of vegs of your choice n also try adding some greens like spinach/methi,if in hand.
