Sweet Paniyarams

Cooks in: 30 Minutes Serves: 4 People

Paniyarams are famous Chettinad delicacies which are prepared in both sweet and salt versions. Karupatti is used as a sweetener. I have used Palm sugar for this recipe.


  • 1 Cup Kodo Millet/Varagu
  • 1/2 Cup Red Poha
  • 1.5 Cups Palm Sugar
  • 2 tbsp grated coconut
  • 2 cardamom
  • 4 tbsp any millet flour


  1. Wash and soak millet and poha for 2 hours and drain.
  2. Grind to smooth batter adding coconut and cardamom. Add only a few tbsp of water while grinding.
  3. Powder the palm sugar and mix in 3 tbsp of water. Strain for impurities.
  4. Heat this syrup just for a minute or till it starts boiling. Switch off.
  5. Add this syrup to the batter and mix well. If necessary, add a few tbsp of any millet flour to get a thick dosa batter consistency. Mine required 4 tbsp of flour.
  6. Keep aside for an hour and make paniyarams with ghee/oil using the paniyaram pan.
