BM# 68-Cooking Carnival: Day 10
Theme of Week 3: Vegetables in Snacks
Dish: Mixed Vegetable Ponganalu

We are starting 3rd week of Cooking Carnival today and I chose another very broad category, Vegetables, as my theme. To make it a little more interesting, I’m going to post Snacks that are made with vegetables or that include vegetables under this theme. First up are these ponganalu/ paniyaram with vegetables.
Vegetable Paniyaram

Paniyaram/ Ponganalu are usually made with either dosa or idli batter and are flavored with cumin seeds, onions, ginger etc. I saw this vegetable paniyaram recipe on one of the Telugu cooking show and it seemed like a great way to add veggies to diet.

Vegetable Paniyaram

You can use either idli batter or dosa batter to make these paniyaram. I used some leftover idli batter in this recipe. If you are concerned that the veggies won’t soften after cooking, then make sure to chop them very fine. Serve these for breakfast or snack with your favorite chutney.

  1. Wow what clicks man ! Absolutely stunning, I am just scrolling the screen, and the ponganalu looks so tempting , loving it Pavani.

  2. That’s a cool theme, Pavani ! Kid approved am sure :)) these look so good ! How is ponganalu different from paddu (that’s one of the Telugu names I know this snack by) ?
