Gundapongal | Paddu| Kuzhi Paniyaram
Written by Jayashree
Published on May 13, 2014

Gundapongal is a popular breakfast in South India. It is also known as paddu, guliyappa and kuzhi paniyaram. The batter is mixed with onion and other ingredients and cooked in a paddu maker, it makes a good breakfast.

Mornings are quite busy, many errands and you have to prepare breakfast and pack the lunch box. Well, we Indians love idly and dosa for breakfast. I think it is ideal to keep a box of batter in the refrigerator, it just saves some time. The chutney too can be pre-made and refrigerated.

I often have dosa batter as I can make gundapongal or uttappam the next day. The same batter can be used for all the three recipes. Serve gundapongal with coconut chutney.

    I love paddu any time of the day. As this becomes too heavy for us as breakfast, I usually make it for dinner. I like your idea of adding some soaked chana dal to the batter.
