I had posted last week on Paniyaram aka great balls of food . Now I was lucky enough to find a video on Youtube which gives a pretty good description of this extravagant South Indian dish.
The chef here calls himself EnglishTamil and has quite a bunch of recipe videos on Youtube. A note of warning – he uses both English and Tamil to explain how its done; if you think you can follow the recipe without knowing Tamil, then it’s time for some lip-smacking action!
The highlight of this variety of Paniyaram is that butter is added in big dollops before the batter is poured in. He (the chef) seems to get the Paniyarams right the first time itself (requires right mixture and fermentation of the batter) and they look crisp and ready to be devoured.
The video is about 8 minutes long and a broadband connection would be recommended to view the video without any interruptions.
