  • Heat a paniyaram pan, when it is hot, add 1/4 tsp of  oil in each shallow.Then take a ladle of batter and  fill each shallow with 3/4th of batter.Cook in moderate flame.

  • When you get holes in  a paniyaram(gunta ponganalu) , it got cooked, so now you can flip a paniyaram, when it turns golden brown at the edges, and both sides are well  cooked  you can remove it from pan.
  • It serves very well with coconut chutney and idli milagai podi.
