Ragi Kuzhipaniyaram/Fingermillet Masala Paniyaram

Tea time is the best moment of the day for most of us after an hectic day, obviously tea time snacks are must and they need to be quite filling as well as healthy to enjoy before the dinner. Most of our tea time snacks goes for healthy stuffs but however kids love to have very much some junk foods. Mostly i'll try to keep away those junkies from my kids and feed them with healthy snacks. One of our recent snacks was this nutritious, healthy fingermillet paniyaram. This paniyaram makes an excellent tea time snacks when served with a spicy side dish. A plate of this Indian aebleskiver is quite enough to fill a small tummy and none at home will ask their dinner earlier.This tiny dumplings are simply prepared with ragi batter, which i prepared with whole finger millet grains but not with ragi flour. Yes this paniyaram is not an instant version. A fermented batter is very much needed to make this healthy,nutritious tea time snacks.

I served mine with a simple tangy eggplant kuzhambu which we had for our lunch, however am sure if you serve this cuties with spicy coconut chutney, everyone at home will definitely enjoy thoroughly without any fuss. Am running my last week of blogging marathon today with Healthy tea time snacks as this week's theme,Obviously these delicious kuzhipaniyaram are going to be part of this week's theme. If you want to feed your kids with healthy and protein packed whole grains dont hesitate a second to add wholegrains in their diet. Make your food healthy and feed your kids with healthy stuffs in their meal. I know some kids wont like to have wholegrains but still as a mom we can make many delicious foods with these wholegrains and feed them easily even without their knowledge.I feed mine this way, everytime i'll find a better way to add wholegrains and some foods i have prepared with wholegrains are our favourite now.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#45.
