Fresh Maize (Makka Cholam) Paniyaram - Minced Fresh Corn Danish style Pancakes

Have lots of fresh sweet corn and tired of eating them on the cob grilled or boiled? They are in season now and available fresh in farmers markets and grocery stores. These fresh sweet corn can be put to good use in a breakfast dish. If you have some left over sour idli batter look no further. Or the batter can be made from scratch if you prefer.

The slight sweetness these sweet corn impart to the paniyarams makes them a special treat. The recipe for how to make idli batter is here.

Separate the corn kernels, blend and add to the idli batter.
Take the onions, cumin seeds and curry leaves and blend to a coarse paste.
Add the onion paste to the corn-idli batter and mix it in.
Make the paniyarams in the paniyaram pan.
