How to make Soya Beans Paniyaram Recipe (Pan Fried Soy Fritters)

  1. To begin making the Soy Beans Paniyaram Recipe, we will first soak the soy beans and urad for atleast 2 hours, separately. Once soaked, cook the soy beans using the pressure cooker method, until soft,adding just enough water. Once cooked, drain the excess water and use it for soups or a vegetable stock.

  2. Now we will blend the boiled potato, cooked soy beans and the soaked urad dal, adding very little water to make a thick and smooth batter. 

  3. Stir in the salt, green chillies, coriander leaves and combined well. Check the salt level.

  4. We will add the seasoning to the batter; for this heat a teaspoon of oil in a small pan; add in the mustard seeds, cumin seeds and curry leaves. Allow them to crackle. Once they crackle add it to the soya bean paniyaram batter. The batter will be of thick pouring consistency.

  5. Preheat the Kuzhipaniyaram pan; drop spoonfulls of batter into each cavity of the paniyaram pan.

  6. Drizzle some oil on all the batter, cover the pan and allow it to steam. Once you notice the tops have steamed with no raw batter, flip the paniyarams to cook on the other side. You can optionally drizzle more oil and cook them until you notice all the sides are golden brown. Make sure you cook on medium heat, so the paniyarams get cooked inside as well.

  7. The Soya Beans Paniyaram is now ready to be served hot with sauce or green chutney.
