There are so many varieties of sweet paniyarams and spicy paniyarams we can make. Each one has different and delicious taste. We can make paniyarams with ragi, wheat, rice, tapioca, oats, and different dals. When sweet paniyarams are prepared with sugar, jaggery and karuppatti, red chillies, green chillies, chopped onions, coriander leaves and spices enhance the taste of kara paniyarams. Usually paniyarams are cooked in traditional paniyara chatti. Paniyara chatti is available in Maakkal, iron, mud and aluminium. But nowadays non-stick paniyara chatti is available and it is so good to use  as there is no need to pour oil in the moulds every time we make paniyarams.  

This green gram paniyaram is a traditional one. This also can be prepared with whole green gram.
