Paddu


Paddu is a indian fast food dish made by steaming batter, traditionally made from pulses (specifically black lentils) and rice using a mould. The cast iron mould/pan has seven holes and shallow fries the batter into round shaped delicacy!! This is a preferred option for quick snacking as well as made for eating on long distance trips / travel as it stays good without refrigeration...
Most of the food stalls will certainly have this option available along with idly and dosa as hot and fresh food unlike other fast frozen microwaved warmies!!

This is also called as Guliappam(patties from the holes). I love them especially when green chillies , corriander and curry leaves are chopped and added to the batter to add a little spice. Some variations with grated carrots and chopped onions are tried as well and this is a hot favourite at my place! Nice Job there. Have been following this blog from quite sometime now.
