4. After 5 hours, Drain the water and grind into a batter.

7. Heat the paniyara kadai and add a drop of oil/ghee in each hole.

8. Pour the batter carefully in all holes and cook by closing it with a lid.

9. Turn the paniyaram and cook the other side too.

10. Serve the yummy Chola Karupatti Paniyaram hot.


I skipped fenugreek seeds but still, it was fluffy.

Rinse and wash sorghum as many times as possible.

The batter should either rise up or have millions of pores when whisked if fermented well.

Do not add much water while grinding the batter.

Add salt only when you are about to prepare the paniyaram.

Adding ghee instead of oil enhances the taste.
