Paniyaram is a quick-to-make snack eaten during tea time and at special occasions. It is easy to make in a few minutes when unexpected guests or hungry kids need to be served.
Servings : 2
Refined wheat flour (Maida) – 1 cup or 100grams
Egg – 1
Refined sugar – 50 grams
Banana (ripe) – 1
Soda bi-carb (cooking soda) – A pinch
Oil - In a pan for deep frying.
Method: Sift the flour and cooking soda in a sieve. Beat the egg with sugar till sugar dissolves. Mix the flour and egg-sugar mixture with the mashed banana, adding enough water to make a thick batter.
Heat the oil in a deep fryer. Take a spoonful of this batter and drop gently into the hot oil. 5,6 pieces can be fried together. Cook till they are fluffy and evenly cooked to a golden brown color. Drain the excess oil and serve.
Tip: Use medium heat for frying as the inside of the paniyarams should be cooked thoroughly.
