Idli OR Dosa batter muffins
This recipe is similar to paniyaram/gunta pungulu/paddu which is a popular breakfast or snack which is a mixture of the indian crepe spiced with chopped onion, green chillies, cumin seeds. This traditionally made using a paddu pan but baking it in the muffin tray also tastes great and off course low calorie as oil used is less.
Baking time: 18-20mins
Preparation time: 10mins
