Ravai/Semolina/Cracked wheat - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
All purpose flour/maida - 1 cup
Water - 1 cup
Baking soda - 1 teaspoon
Cardamom - 1 teaspoon
Oil for deep frying
Mix all the ingredients together and leave aside for 10 to 15 minutes..The amount of semolina, sugar,maida and water should be equal to get the desired panniyaarams..If you add more quantity of sugar or water there is a tendency not to get paniyaarams of proper shape.After 10 minutes with the help of a large spoon pour a little batter into hot oil..Wait for one paniyaaram to raise to the surface of the oil and then pour the next one..Or else they might stick together..Cook on each side for about three minutes or until they turn golden brown..Do not keep the flame too high as the inside part might not get cooked properly..
Serves as a good snack..
