Vellai Paniyaram and Cabbage paratha - Some left over delicacies

Left Over Delicacy 1 -  Velai/white Paniyaram
I had some left over batter from the Vellai Appam that I made last week.  The next day I made some paniyarams out of it.It turned out very delicious, and my little one liked them more than the Appams. Next time I will make the batter specially to make these Paniyarams.


Ingredients:

Left over Appam Batter
Some chopped onions.
Mustard , urad dhal, channa dhal , curry leaves for seasoning

Method:
Take a  tblsp of oil in a pan.Add all the seasoning ingredients.Wait till the mustard splutturs and the dhal turns golden brown, add the chopped onions and fry till translucent.
Mix this with the batter and mix well.

Heat a Paniyaram kadai to a medium heat. Drop 1/2 tsp of oil in each mould and add a tblsp of batter in each of them.Close it with a lid and cook for few  minutes.
turn them over and cook for another couple of minutes.
These can be relished as it is or with any spicy chutney.


Cabbage Paratha:
Left over delicacy - 2

I have already mentioned the size of the cabbage that we get here. Its too much I say. Whenever I buy one , I try to use them up in various ways. On one such occasions I made a big batch of cabbage poriyal. I didnt realise the quantity until I shredded and  I didnt feel like placing them again in the refrigerator. So decided to go ahead and make porial of it.  Initial plan was to use the left over porial to make Oothapams for dinner. But at the last minute changed my plan and decided to add them to the chapati dough and try some cabbage paratha's.  These last minute plans always works well for me. It turned out really good. Hence I got another filling recipe and also found a great way to use up the really big cabbage.

Here is the recipe for Cabbage poriyal.

Method:
Add the left over poriayal and required salt (very little) to the wheat flour and mix well with your fingers to form crumb like texture.Then add water little by little to form a stiff dough.Roll out into discs and cook on a hot tawa with some oil. Flip the sides and cook till brown spots appear on both the sides

Sending these to the 'COL -Left Over Delicacies' event  at 'Spicy Lounge'
