Suzhiyam/Sweet Paniyaram/sweet Dumplings
Suzhiyam is a traditional and sweet variety which is very famous in Tamil Nadu. It can be done easily with simple ingredients. This Suzhiyam can also be called as seeyam, sweet paniyaram and also has many names around Tamilnadu.
Especially In Coimbatore, we called it as sweet paniyaram and also all the festivals will be fulfilled only when we make this sweet paniyaram. This seeyam gives you the amazing tatse with the stuffing we made in it. For stuffing, I used Toor dal but also we can use chana Dal, the main thing is whatever dal you use it should be boiled carefully.
