Brown Rice Paddu(Gundpanglu)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
After the successful making of Brown rice dosa, I thought of giving a sequel to this and thought of making Paddu or Gundpanglu. 
The Paddu has very different name in each language. It is called Unniyappam in Malayalam, Paniyaram in Tamil, Ponganalu in Telugu. I know the name only in these languages.
Its a very common breakfast which is prepared at least once in a week in our house. 
Normally, we prepare it with normal rice, urad dal, chana dal and methi seeds.
But the other day I made it with brown rice. I was scared that I will get burnt ones. But the result was superb. I was very happy to eat soft, spongy, nice golden brown color paddu.

Brown rice - 11/2 cup
Normal white rice : 1/2 cup
Urad dal - 1 cup
Chana cal - 1/2 cup
(Maintain 2:1:1/2 ratio for rice : urad dal : chana dal)
Methi seeds - 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Oil to roast the paddu.

  • Soak both the  rice and methi seeds in one vessel and Urad dal and chana dal in another vessel in the water for 4 to 6 hours.
  • Grind the dals first into smooth paste first. Transfer into a big vessel.
  • Next grind the rice into fine paste with little water. Mix it with the dal. Add salt and mix well.
  • Keep in warm condition for 8 hours. 
  • Make sure to keep the batter in a big vessel. Otherwise it will overflow.
  • Heat the Gundpanglu tawa. Spray little oil. Put 1 tbsp or more (depending upon the size of the tawa) batter. Cover and cook on  medium flame. After 10 to 15 Seconds, turn on the other side. Cook for another minute or less.

Remove and serve with Coconut, Tomato or Onion chutney.
We always add either 
finely chopped onion, green chilly and curry leaves OR
dill leaves and green chilly.

Sending this to two events:
Food palette series brown from  Torviewtoronto 


Perfect for the quick dinner(if batter is ready and kept in the fridge). Paddu, Idly, dosa are my hubby's favorite which he loves to have during dinner time as he gets time to enjoy each bite with chutney and that too when I serve it hot hot :-)))

No time to try for 3rd sequel :-(
Keep Smiling,
