சிவப்பு அரிசிக் குழி பணியாரம் மாவு / Red Rice Kuzhi Paniyaram Batter

This is very similar to regular Kuzhi Paniyaram which I have explained in one of my posts Kuzhi Paniyaram but that is made out of regular dosa batter.Here I have demonstrated with red rice which is very healthy
I have blogged it as two posts - this post elaborates on how batter is made and the next post would be how Red Rice Kuzhi Paniyaram is made using the same batter

Ingredients
Part 1 - Soaking
  • Red boiled rice - 3 cups (easily available in many Departmental stores)
  • Urad dhal - 1 cup
  • Channa dhal + Toor dhal +Moong dhal - together 1 cup (Take 2 /12 tablespoons each)
  • Methi seeds - 1 tablespoon
Part 2 - Soaking
  • Red rice flakes / Aval / Poha - handful
  • Salt - 1 teaspoon 
Method
Step 1 - Soaking 
  • Wash and soak rice, dhal varieties, methi together for 8 hours / overnight
  • Soak poha  for 1 hour (prior to grinding)

Step 2 - Preparing batter
  • Take the soaked items in a mixer jar - little at a time and grind it together to a smooth and fluffy using 1/4 - 1/2 cup of cold water
  • Transfer it into a big container
  • Add poha while grinding the last batch

  • Transfer the batter into a tall container so that it has space for fermentation.Add salt and mix well using your hands
  • Allow this batter to ferment for 6 hours

Now the batter for kuzhi paniyaram is ready.Lets see how to make the same in my next post
