What is the 285th Foodiemonday Bloghop Theme?

This week’s chosen theme is #PniyaramPanMagic and the hostess is Priya Vj. She wants us share any recipe using Paniyaram Pan. Priya is a versatile bloggers with many traditional and international recipes on her blog. I Loved her Inji Karvepillai thogayal.Do check her space. My humble contribution for this theme is delicious Beetroot Corn Bites.

Ingredients for Beetroot Corn Bites :

  • Beetroot : I have grated the beetroot. Squeezed the excess juice. I added this juice to my one pot millet meal. Great source of fiber and folate.
  • Corn: I have used corn kernels.It is rich in fiber and aids digestion.
  • Potatoes: I have used potatoes to bind the veggies. Potatoes are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
  • Rice Flour:It is gluten free. Helps to bind the veggies.
  • Green chilli:I have added one green chilli that is not spicy. You can skip it if you making for young children.
  • Salt: Main ingredient of the dish.
  • Kashmiri Chilli Powder: Adds some color to the dish with a very mild spice kick.
  • Chaat Masala:Chaat Masala enhances the taste with a little tang.
  • Tikka masala: Gives a nice flavor and taste to the dish. You can add garam masala in case you do not have tikka masala.
  • Kasuri Methi: I did not have coriander hence added kasuri methi. You can add any greens of your choice.
  • Bread Crumbs: Just roll the balls in the bread crumbs . You will get a nice crisp texture.
  • Oil : I just used little oil to grease the paniyaram pan .Made these bites in very less oil.

  1. I am drooling here just by looking at these beautiful beetroot corn bites. Each and every ingredient that has gone into the making is a sure shot taste and flavor enhancer and I am sure the bowl must have been polished clean. Definitely going to make this.

  2. Beetroot corn bites looks so inviting. I wish I could taste it right now. Fabulous recipe Preethi. Loved the use of paniyaram pan to make these bites using less oil instead of deep frying. A super healthy and delicious snack for everyone.

  3. I also beetroot and corn pakoras in paniyaram pan to cut down on the oil. Loved your version where you have used tikka masala, kasuri methi and chat masala to flavor your appe. Sounds absolutely Delish !

  4. Beetroot corn bites looks very crispy & inviting with lovely presentation. Those green chillies on beetroot bites looks very tempting. Liked the flavors of tikka masala and kasuri methi in it.
