This needs a 'Kuzhi paniyaram' skillet which could be available (in USA) in the name of "Pan Cake Puff Skillet". Check out here.
This may not be compared to the original Paniyaram as the recipe is different for that. But its a great snack/tiffin made from leftover idli/dosa batter (Made with Idly rice, I am not sure if this will come good with batter made with Idly Rava.). This tastes best when batter is sour. Comes out real fluffy and tasty
