Oatmeal Paniyaram - a healthy and yummy snack

I made these from leftover oatmeal rava idli batter and it was totally yum. You can add grated carrots to it too.
Here is the recipe recap :
Ingredients :
Toasted Oats - 1 cup
Rava (Sooji) - 1 cup
Yogurt - 1 cup
Water - as required
Salt - as required
Mustard seeds, urad daal, channa daal, hing for seasoning
Eno salt - 2 spoons
Grated carrots - as desired



Method :Mix oats with rava, salt and yogurt.Add water as required. The consistency of the batter should be similar to idly batter.Let it sit for an hour.In a pan, heat little oil and pop mustard seeds.Add urad daal, channa daal (Approx 1 spoon each) and hing and fry till they are golden brown.Add to the batter.Add 2 spoons of eno salt and sprinkle some water and mix well.The batter will raise and look like fermented idli batter.

Apply 1 or 2 drops of oil to each impression in the kuzhipaniyaram pan (or Aebleskiver Pan). Fill the impression with batter. Fill it only half way as it puffs up. Cook for about 2,3 minutes and turn each paniyaram with the wooden spoon and cook for some more time. Check by inserting the back of a spoon to see if it sticks. If it doesn't, then it is done and you can remove them from the pan.

This is a yummy variation to the idli as it is crispy and kids love it. My kids call them salty balls and it's their favorite snack now :)
