Once again a karnataka traditional recipe yeriyappa/giliyappa/paddu... called with different names in different regions of Karnataka. It can be served as a very good evening snacks.
Everyday we used to crib that we dont have the thava to make this paddu. Luckily one day when i was talking with my Friend Sini, she told me that she got the non stick guliyappa thava from india this time:) I never made it late.. Immediately i borrowed the thava from her for a few days.. returned back home, prepared the batter and next evening guliyappa was ready for the evening snack!!!!!!! we are really so crazy for this..
