Need ideas to use left over Dosa batter? Let's make puliyappam with it. It is a crisp appam which goes well with Coconut Groundnut Chutney. All you need is a cast iron or non stick kuzhi paniyaram chatti / aebleskiver pan ( a pancake pan).

We also call it Kara Appa Chatti. This appam can be made for breakfast or even as evening snack. I found this recipe in my mini Double Horse Recipe Book. My family and kids loved it as it was a welcome change from the usual dosa.

(Printable Recipe)


Thick Dosa Batter - 2 cups
Finely Chopped Onion - 2 medium size
Finely chopped ginger - 2 tsp
Finely chopped green chilly - 2 nos
Finely chopped curry leaves - 2 tsp
Finely chopped coriander leaves - 2 tsp
Oil - for frying
Salt - to taste

Mix all the ingredients in the batter.
Heat the kuzhi paniyaram chatti.
Pour oil into each pit of the pan (almost half).
When the oil is hot pour a ladle full of batter into each pit. Cook on medium flame.
When the sides turn golden, flip it using a fork to cook the top of the appam.
Once cooked transfer them to a sieve or plate lined with kitchen roll.
Enjoy with chutney.
