Soya-Beans Paniyaram

Being a protein-lover, I kept a big pack of soya granules in-house but hardly ever used it! May be ‘coz it’s hard to bring flavors in this source of protein… Even if I make soya patties for burgers, I need so many extra elements to enrich the taste n flavors :P

Had a can of mixed beans on hand n saw my soya granules crying to be used up sometime… More than that, got in conversation with Natasha on a foodie group regarding finger-food we can make using paniyaram pan n instantly thought of making this one :) Soya ‘n’ Beans Paniyaram, healthy n flavorful appetizer/snack to have with a cuppa tea!!!

Soya-Beans Paniyaram


1/2 cup Soya Granules
1/2 cup Milk
1/2 can Mixed Beans, drained
1 Boiled potato
1 tbsp Plain Flour
1 tsp Cumin Powder, roasted
1/4 tsp Red Chilly Powder
1/2 tsp Amchur Powder
Salt, to taste

  1. Soak soya granules in milk for 15-20 mins and squeeze them to remove moisture completely.
  2. Mix it with mashed mixed beans and all other ingredients.
  3. Make 10 equal sized balls out of this mixture.
  4. Heat paniyaram pan and drizzle few drops of oil in each mould.
  5. Put prepared balls in it and roast it until golden brown on both the sides.
  6. Serve hot with green chutney!


  • You can eliminate potato completely. I used it as I love adding potatoes in any appetizer I make ;)
