Pearl Millet (Bajra/Kambu) and Corn (Cholam) Paniyaram

Pearl_Millet_Bajra_Kambu_Corn_Cholam_Paniyaram_1I prefer to include more vegetables in my menu to make it more colourful and healthy. Here is Pearl Millet (Kambu) and Corn (Cholam) Paniyaram with colourful veggies, pearl millet and American sweet corn.

Pearl millet batter used to prepare Idli/Dosa, can be used to prepare this paniyaram.

Corn is known as ‘cholam’ (சோளம்) in Tamil.


  • Pearl millet (dosa consistency) batter – 2 cup
  • American sweet corn boiled – 1 cup
  • Chopped capsicum red/yellow/green – 1 tablespoon each
  • Onion chopped – 1 tablespoon
  • Green chilli chopped – 2 no
  • Ginger chopped – half teaspoon
  • Coriander and curry leaves chopped – 1 tablespoon
  • Salt – if needed as the batter contains salt
  • Oil – little to cook paniyaram



  • Mix all given ingredients except oil in a bowl.
