Paniyaram (Pan Cakes)

Cooking Time: 15 minutes.

Servings :  2


  • Refined wheat flour (Maida)  – 1 cup or 100grams
  • Egg  – 1
  • Refined sugar  – 50 grams
  • Banana (ripe)  – 1
  • Soda bi-carb (cooking soda)  – A pinch
  • Oil  –  In a pan for deep frying.


Sift the flour and cooking soda in a sieve. Beat the egg with sugar till sugar dissolves. Mix the flour and egg-sugar mixture with the mashed banana, adding enough water to make a thick batter. Heat the oil in a deep fryer. Take a spoonful of this batter and drop gently into the hot oil.  5,6 pieces can be fried together. Cook till they are fluffy and evenly cooked to a golden brown color. Drain the excess oil and serve.

Tip: Use medium heat for frying as the inside of the paniyarams should be cooked thoroughly.
