Its always the make happiness in order to celebrate any occasion. That too along with sweets mean lots and lots of happiness. We tried to make a traditional sweet which is healthy at the same time good for diabetes. So we tried Salangai paniyaram which is traditional Tirupur sweet and came out very well.


Green gram - 400 g
Jaggery - 150 g
Salt - a pinch
Rice flour - ½ cup
Maida - 2 tsp
Oil for deep fry


Roast the green gram in a pan without oil until the color turn and raw flavor goes out.

Make the roasted green gram into coarse powder in a mixer grinder.
Melt the jaggery in a pan by adding half cup of water. Filter out to remove the dust.

Add a pinch salt into the jaggery linctus. When it is warm enough, add spoon by spoon with green gram powder until the jaggery combined. Then make a gooseberry size balls and keep for few minutes. After five minutes the balls will get tight.

Now add rice flour and maida in a bowl and add little cold water along with pinch of salt. Mix it well to make batter. Batter should be thinner than the dosa batter.

Heat a cup of oil in a pan and bring to hot. Now just add a drop of batter. If it is popped out, the oil is hot enough. Keep it in medium flame.
Dip balls into the batter and deep fry in oil. Do it batch by batch. Turn often to fry all side even.
Take out and cool down. The outer layer will be crispy and inner stuff will be sweet. Now Salangai Paniyaram is ready to serve.
We can store this in refrigerator for 15 days.
