3). In a medium flame, heat the paniyaram
(aebleskiver) pan. Fill each mould up to ⅓rd with sesame oil. Once oil is heated, pour spoonful of the paniyaram batter leaving some space over the top for it to rise. Cover it with a lid and allow the paniyarams to cook.

4). Once the rims of the paniyaram turns golden brown, gently flip it. Use the wooden skewer, that comes with the paniyaram pan for fliping. Cook on the other side until it turns golden brown. When both sides are cooked even, remove it to a serving bowl and continue the same process for the remaining batter.

Serve hot with any chutney of your choice. I served it with peanut chutney. This paniyaram is a great way to include this highly nutritional millet in our diet. 

Notes :-

# You can add any vegetable of your choice and make it wholesome.
# The batter should be in the consistency of Dosa batter. Otherwise the paniyarm will become very hard.
# Make sure to keep the flame in medium to avoid burnt or uncooked paniyaram. If the flame is on high, only the outer portion will get cooked and the middle portion will be raw.
# Left over idli/Dosa batter can be used for this recipe. 

# Check for salt and adjust accordingly, as the batter itself has salt. 
#The batter shouldn't be too runny, the consistency should be of idli batter. Ensure the batter is thick for holding the paniayaram shape.
# Sesame oil gives nice flavor to the dish. Its optional though, you can use regular cooking oil or ghee.
