Maida or All purpose flour - ½ cup
Dates, cashew, almond, pista paste - ½ cup

Cardamom powder- 1 tsp
Crushed jaggery - ½ cup
Desiccated coconut- 1 tbsp
Oil - For deep frying

Directions:

Soak the nuts and dates in water for nearly 
½ hour and grind into a paste.   Keep aside. 


Soak the jaggery in half cup of water till it dissolves in it.  Filter that and keep aside.

Take a bowl add dates nuts paste, wheat flour, maida, cardamom powder and desiccated coconut.  Mix well.

Pour jaggery water over the flour mixture to make into  batter (the batter should be in semi thick consistency like dosa batter).





Heat the kuzhipaniyaram pan; add 1 to 2 tsp oil or ghee into each hole.

Pour the batter in each hole and allow to cook in the medium flame.



Turn on the other side using a tooth pick or a stick.

Allow to cook till both sides turn golden brown colour.  Serve hot.



If you don't have Kuzhipaniyaram pan, try this

Heat the oil for deep frying.  When the oil is really hot, drop spoonfuls of batter in the hot oil. Fry till it gets golden brown and crisp.

Remove from oil and place on a tissue or on a vessel with tiny holes to drain out the excess oil.

Serve Hot.
