Vellai paniyaram /செட்டிநாடு வெள்ளைப் பணியாரம்

Vellai paniyaram is chettinad snack which is very famous in wedding and deepavali.I have tasted it in many of the events.When I tasted paniyaram for the first time,it was soft and tasty went well with the red chutney. Its a delicate dish to cook.It depends on rice quality and temperature how the batter is made.The batter is well made without fermenting. I have asked many people how it is made.Someone told to try ice cubes while grinding the batter to avoid fermenting.
