- Once you mix the jaggery, make paniyarams immediately.
- Quantity of the rice flour added would purely depend on how thick your idli batter is. So add a little initially and then add more if needed. You may also use less if your batter is already thick.
- If the batter ends up thick, the bonda will turn out hard. If the batter ends up thin, the bonda will absorb more oil while frying. The batter consistency can be adjusted accordingly.
- Instead ofjaggery, you can also add karupatti .
