Paniyaram Chutney

Paniyaram is a South Indian dish made by steaming batter using a mould. The batter is made of black lentils and rice and is similar in composition to the batter used to make idly and dosa. This dish can be made sweet and spicy by adding ingredients jaggery and chillies respectively. Paniyaram is made on a special pan that comes with multiple small fissures. It is always served with spicy chutney. This chutney is the best combination to be served with. I learned it from my sister. It goes well with idly and dosa too. This chutney is an awesome treat for spicy lovers. I love it.  You’ll believe me when you taste it!
