Masala Podi Paniyaram Recipe / Podi Paniyaram Recipe

If you have Dosa batter in hand, then this Podi Paniyaram will take only 20 minutes to cook. I often make Podi Idlis for kids lunch box and this Podi Paniyaram as Snack or Evening tiffin when they come from home. They love this Masala Podi Paniyaram a lot. This Podi Paniyaram is a versatile recipe, you can serve for Breakfast, Evening Tiffin or as a snack too. 
I have used coconut oil for this recipe but you can use peanut oil or ghee. Instead of just adding podi to the paniyaram I prepared onion-tomato masala first then added Paniyarams, this way it won't be dry and also no special side dish is required, just enjoy hot with some ketchup or sweet sauce.  Do give it a try and share your feedback.
