This time Tried and Tasted is from Priya's Easy N Tasty Recipes. Like most of you I too have a long list to try from Priya's recipes. Priya is known for her quick, easy and innovative recipes with all healthy ingredients. Although I have a long list to try from her recipes, this time I'm posting this oats paniyaram and murukku for the event hosted by Seduce your taste buds.
Both tasted absolutely delicious and easy to make too. You can view the original recipes of Priya from here and here.
Preparation Time: 20 minutes+ Soaking Time
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Makes about 15 paniyaram( might vary according to the pan size)
Raw rice- 1 cup
Rolled oats- 1 cup
Jaggery- 1/2 cup ( I used black jaggery)
Grated coconut- 1/4 cup
Cardamom powder- 1/4 tsp
Bicarbonate of soda- 1/4 tsp
Ghee or oil for frying
Soak the rice in water for 2 hours. Grind it to a smooth paste by adding little water. Soak the oats for 10 minutes. Add it to the the rice mixture and grind well. Finally add the banana, coconut, jaggery and cardamom powder, grind well again.
If the batter is too thick add some water to make a drop consistency. Add the bicarbonate of soda and mix well. Heat a paniyaram pan, add oil or ghee in each round. Drop a spoonful of batter in each round, cook in medium to low heat . After 2 or 3 minutes, turn to the other side. When it's cooked, drain from oil.
If you don't have a paniyaram pan, just deep fry it in the normal kadai.
Oats and Coconut Murukku

Cooking Time: 30 minutes

Oil for deep frying
Powder roasted gram dhal, rolled oats and urad dhal separately into a fine fine powder. Sieve the urad dhal powder to make it fine. Heat the coconut milk and butter just under a boiling point. Mix all the powder, rice flour, salt and seeds in a large bowl. Add the heated coconut milk mix together to make a smooth dough.
Put a ball of dough into the murukku press and press as murukkus in a greased plate or aluminium foil. Heat oil in a pan. Put the murukkus one by one at a time in the hot oil. Cook on both sides until the oil stops bubbling. Take it out from the oil. Store the murukkus in a air tight container.
