Cholam Kuzhi Paniyaram | Chola Kuzhi Paniyaram | Sorghum or Jowar Recipe

Kuzhi Paniyaram is a traditional and  famous tiffen / breakfast in Tamil nadu.
This Paniyaram can be made with Rice / millet / Dal with 'n' number of variation in flavor and taste.

This recipe is made with little millet , "Sorghum" , Cholam in tamil and known as Jowar in Hindi.

This Sorghum millet gives nice flavor to this recipe...now i have made it as plain Paniyaram without addition of any masala.  Soon will come up with other variations too :)

Addition of finely chopped coconut gives a nice crunchy bite to this dish. Usually it is paired up with spicy tomato chutney.
