   3.   Place paniyaram pan( chatti) on gas stove and grease each hole with oil.
   4.  Take egg paniyaram batter in tablespoon and drop into each paniyaram hole.
   5.  Cook paniyaram on medium heat, when one side is done flip paniyaram with a paniyaram stick or  spoon to the other side and cook until golden brown.

Chefs tip.
   1. This very easy to make and my little kid likes it a lot, its perfect for lunch box.
   2. Since I don’t have a paniyaram chatti or gas stove in Sydney, I used a cake pop maker to make these paniyaram. If you use paniyaram chatty on gas stove the paniyaram will be crispy outside.
   3. You can also add chopped and sauté onion, green chilies, curry leaves and mustard tempering to egg paniyaram batter if making for adults.
