Moong Dal Pakoda in Paniyaram Pan:

Paniyaram is a popular South Indian dish that is cooked in a specially designed pan. It is also known as appe pan. You can make varieties of recipes using appe pan. You can make deep fried snacks healthier using the appe pan. I tried moong dal pakora in the appe pan it turned out good though little denser than the deep fried ones.

Unfortunately, I forget to click the pics. Next time, I will make sure to click the pics before finishing the pakora.

  1. Heat a few drops of oil in each mold in the paniyaram pan and fill each mold with the batter.
  2. Cover and cook on both the sides until the pakoras get cooked. Serve with chutney or sambar.
