Sweet Aval Paniyaram
I got this recipe from my neighbour. When I was talking with her, she showed me a recipe book given by her chettinad friend. It contained many hand written recipes. I was surprised by her patience. Gifting such a wonderful recipe book to a neighbour is wonderful. This recipe doesn’t need fermenting like the usual paniyaram. The rice flakes give the softness even without fermenting. Sruti and hubby liked it very much. I served these paniyarams with coconut chutney. The combination was absolutely delicious.
