Chola paniyaram recipe, white sorghum paniyaram

Chola paniyaram recipe, white sorghum or jowar millet made into delicious, paniyaram. Full video step by step pictures.

I have never cooked cholam before in my life. But always fascinated by the name cholam. In my childhood, our home was surrounded by cholam field. We never knew much about millets those days. Still the field full of cholam was quite a sight to see. We used to play all around the fields. Also used to eat some fresh cholam. It used to be very milky and chewy.

One of my friend (Sugapriya/ we call her sugar) last week sent her chola paniyaram pictures live while making, through whatsapp. It was too tempting. She shared how to make it also, in detailed. So asked her all the silly doubts just because she is available. Since Vj could source the sorghum/ jowar/ white cholam near his office grocery itself, got lucky and made these paniyarams.

Everyone at home loved it. I made dosai with the same batter (just diluted a little) and made. It turned out good, Aj also ate it as dosais the next day.

Things to note while making white cholam/ sorghum / jowar paniyaram or dosai batter:
  • No need to ferment for more hours like our regular idli dosa batter as this tends to become sour fast (in this recipe) So if you are in humid location, just keep outside for 2 hours and then inside fridge. Keep an hour outside before making. This gives best taste for paniyaram.
  • Grind rice + cholam as thick batter as after mixing, it will become watery if you add more water.
  • I ground separately urad dal for fluffy results. You can grind in mixie as well as soak all together and grind. But best soft results in grinder.
  • Use ice water for urad dal for max volume.
Is cholam / jowar/ sorghum good for weight loss?

Cholam/ jowar/ sorghum has similar amount of carbs. But because of the nutrients and fiber content, it feels full for longer. Also it has lower Glycemic index. Make sure to control the portion anyways.
