Paal Paniyaram - My Guest Post For Friendship Chain at Mélange

Few days back i got a mail from Dhyuthi of Mélange, she wanted me to prepare a dish for Friendship Chain event, started by Anamika Arun of Taste Junction, since its sounds extremely important for me i immediately said ok and went on breaking my head to prepare something special and traditional from my native place, also personally i felt its quite a fabulous chance to showcase the food which we enjoyed thoroughly when we were kid..


The concept of this event is to choose a mystery blogger and ask her to prepare a special and traditional dish from her region and showcasing it also at the same time she have to ask an another mystery blogger to create a dish for her to post laterly, quite an interesting concept na...Reva of Kaarasaram choosed Dhyuthi for her mystery blogger,while Dhyuthi choosed me as her mystery blogger..Dont forget to visit my space on 15th July to check out my mystery blogger,yeah i have already choosed a wonderful blogger to continue this virtual friendship chain..Thanks to Dhyuthi for bringing out many memorable moments while preparing this Paal paniyaram, a delectable dessert from Chettinad region of Tamilnadu..

Eventhough i have been born and brought up in Pondicherry, a fabulous ancien French territory and a beautiful seashore cityy, i have been pampered with an ultimate combination of mixed South Indian cuisine and french cuisine..Love this diversity of cooking from my birth place and obviously my cooking style goes for this wonderful combination of many cuisines together... My mom,an incredible chef who never failed to prepare many dishes teached me her love for cooking,one among her signature dish is this Paal Paniyaram, this dish is quite well known in Chettinad cuisine and this sweet tastes super delicious when they are served warm or chilled..


1cup Raw rice
1cup Urad dal
3cups Thick coconut milk
1cup Thin coconut milk
1cup Sugar
5nos Cardamoms (powdered)
Few silvered almonds (for garnishing)

Soak the raw rice and urad dal for 3 hours, grind as fine paste in grinder with enough water but as thick batter..Heat oil for deepfrying, once the oil is hot, drop gently the grounded batter as small balls, fry them until they turns golden brown,finish frying the whole batter as small balls and keep aside..



Meanwhile bring boil the both coconut milk,sugar and powdered cardamom powder, keep simmer until the milk gets mildly thicken..put off the stove and soak the deep fried balls in the coconut milk,keep aside everything atleast for an hour and serve warm or chilled topped with few almonds flakes....

Dont forget to watch out my mystery blogger's dish on July 15th friends, stay tuned...
