Poha Paniyaram | Healthy Poha Vada

Poha paniyaram is a yummy snack which you can make super quick. The whole credit for this recipe goes to my dear hubby :) He gave me the recipe idea and suggested me to try in paniyaram pan which actually made these paniyarams or vadas very healthy and delicious. I have made these a few times now. For the regular paniyarams, you need the idli / dosa batter which takes a long process to make. But this can be prepared in a jiffy and when you are not quite sure of what snack to prepare quickly.  Serve them hot and I hope you all will love these...so please do try them !!





You need...

11/4 cup thick Poha
1/4 cup finely chopped Onion
1" pc Ginger finely chopped
3-4 Green chillies chopped
3-4 Curry Leaves chopped
2 tbsp grated Carrot (optional)
2 tbsp Coconut (optional)
1/4 cup Yoghurt
a few Coriander leaves finely chopped
Salt



To prepare...

Soak poha in water, maybe a little more than 1/2 cup water, for about 5 minutes. The poha should be completely wet. After 5 minutes, mash the poha with your hands thoroughly and mix well. 

Add rest of the ingredients and combine well. If necessary add a little water to help in mixing. You should get a dough like consistency and you should be able to make smooth balls out of it. So care should be taken not to add too much water.  Now make medium size balls out of it and keep aside.

Heat a paniyaram pan. Add few drops of oil in each hole. Place each poha ball in each hole. Cover and cook for 2 minutes until the bottom gets brown. Now slowly flip it and let it get brown. You can slowly rotate the poha ball so that sides also get slightly browned.

Poha paniyaram or vadas are ready. Serve hot with chutney or pickle or even sambhar.




Notes:
* You can deep fry them if you desire
* You can also do the tempering, saute the veggies slightly and then add with poha.
