Paddu (Guliyappa) / ಪಡ್ಡು (ಗುಳಿಯಪ್ಪ)

ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಓದಲು ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಮಾಡಿ.

Finally my wish to prepare Paddu has come true! I didn't have a Paddu pan till recently and was telling hubby to buy the same for me. Last month, we had been to buy some vessels and hubby got a Paddu pan :) After that, I prepared Paddu so many times and every time, it was a success! 
If you have left - over set dosa batter, its damn easy to prepare Paddu. I have used the regular set dosa batter for preparing Paddu and add few more ingredients like onion, green chillies, etc. for this batter. Paddu goes well for breakfast, lunch box, as well as evening snacks.

Preparation time: 25 - 30 minutes
Servings: 5 - 6

Set Dosa batter - (same quantity of ingredients as told for set dosa)
Finely chopped onion - 5
Finely chopped green chillies 6 - 7
Finely chopped curry leaves 15 - 20
Oil for frying

Prepare the batter in the same way as set dosa and keep it in a warm place for 7 - 8 hours for fermentation.
Add 1 spoon of sugar and salt to taste and mix well.
Then add finely chopped onion, green chillies and curry leaves and mix it nicely.
Heat the Paddu pan and fill each hole with 1 tsp of oil.
Fill the batter in every hole up-to 3/4th level using a table spoon. Leave a little space for the Paddu to puff up.
Once the base of the Paddu turns golden brown, turn it carefully and cook the other side also.
Serve hot Paddu along with Coconut chutney

  • Left over dosa batter can be refrigerated and used to prepare Paddu for the same evening or next day morning.
